The Schreibzentrum | Writing Center of the JMU gives students the opportunity to become educators.
Student writers are specially trained to assist their fellow students in the scientific writing process. As advanced students with experience in academic writing, writing tutors offer feedback on outlines and the development of texts through short workshops and in private consultations.
