The Write to Excellence Center (WTEC) is a free resource to help students, faculty and staff develop and strengthen their writing skills.

Our tutors provide guidance for all steps of the writing process, from brainstorming to final draft revisions. Tutors are prepared to help you improve your writing in any academic discipline. In addition we can help you break down your assignments into manageable chunks and pace yourself. You can also use the space for study.

  • Outlining
  • Content Development
  • Thesis Statements
  • Introductions/ Conclusions
  • Essay Organization
  • Use of Sources
  • Word Choices
  • Sentence Structure
  • Grammar/Mechanics

Tutors can also provide assistance other forms of professional writing, including résumé development and writing for academic publications. While tutors do not proof read or line-edit for you, they can help you develop your personal proof reading skills. Students will need to create an account that is different from their McNeese or Moodle accounts. A helpful video on our website will guide you through this. Make an appointment with a WTEC tutor today.

LitLab

Students can receive assistance in understanding literature and other reading materials from classes by visiting the Lit Lab located in Write to Excellence Center. Lit Lab appointments can be made online through the WTEC system.

Face-to-Face and E-Tutoring

While face-to-face appointments are more effective, students may opt to make e-tutoring appointments, which are asynchronous. A video on our scheduling system (mcneese.mywconline.com) explains the process.
