Who We Are

The writing skills lab provides tutoring services to Morehouse students regardless of classification or major. Writing tutors work one-on-one with students to help them improve their writing. Tutors approach writing holistically, explaining and encouraging students’ understanding of grammar and mechanics as well as content and rhetorical approach of their writing. Tutors do not edit or write papers for the students; rather, they approach tutoring as an opportunity for students to expand their skills. All tutors are hired based on their strong skills in English and their ability to communicate well with their peers.

The writing lab is designed to assist Morehouse students in improving their writing skills through tutoring, online sessions, and on-site workshops. Our dedicated tutors are trained in composition, grammar, and digital media and can be seen via appointment or as a walk-in. Located in Brawley Hall, room 200, the writing lab has 34 available Mac desktops as well as 10 wired laptop stations.

Our Lab Resources

  • 25 Macs for Instructional Use
  • 10 Macs for Academic Use
  • 2 Printers (limit printing to 10 pages a day)
  • Internet Access
  • Smart Board
  • Grammar Tutorial Software

In order to utilize the lab, you must present a Morehouse picture ID and provide your major and reason for using the lab to the front desk assistant. If you are seeking tutoring for a specific assignment, please use the lab (and our resources) well before the assignment due date. We will not be able to provide same day assistance.

About the Lab

Most often referred to as the writing skills lab, the name under which it was founded in 1990, the name was expanded to the English Multimedia Writing Skills Lab in 2007 to reflect the innovation of academic computing and technology for teaching and learning Composition. Over the past two decades, the writing lab has served the general student population by providing services that foster the most important professional skill for productivity in our global society: the ability to communicate clearly and effectively through writing.
