Check the availability and complete the information required (your NAME, your CLASS, your INSTRUCTORS NAME, and your REASON FOR COMING TO THE WRITING CENTER).

  • The Psychology Writing Center is located in the basement of the Gruening building in room 106C.
  • Regular office hours are Mondays from 2:00-4:00, Wednesdays from 10:00-12:00, and Thursdays from 2:00-4:00.
  • The Psychology Writing Center tutor is Tyler Hoyt, a graduate student in the Clinical-Community Psychology Program at UAF.

The purpose of this riting center is to help students to write in APA format (which includes proper title pages, citations and reference sections, as well as general writing for psychology research purposes), familiarizing students with proper grammar and professional writing is also emphasized.


What the writing center does:

  • Assists students in the use of the APA Manual.
  • Reviews papers, projects, and presentations in conjunction with students to help with any problems using APA format, research writing, or problems with general grammar and flow for psychology assignments.
  • Helps students with writing problems they may be having in their current psychology courses.
  • Students must be present and active contributors in the tutoring process.  Papers that are "dropped off" for proof reading will neither be read nor corrected by the writing tutor.
  • While the writing tutor is more than happy to assist students with writing needs and process, there is no guarantee by either the department nor by the writing tutor that the assignments assisted with at the writing center will guarantee an "A" in student work.  
  • Remember that with hard work and a dedication to clear, concise, research-oriented writing, you too can become a great writer using APA format!
