The Alabama A&M University Writing Center

 

Our services are free for all AAMU students and our tutors come from a variety of academic disciplines with specialized training to work with all types of writing and writers. Our center also has other writing resources that writers can access for help with such things as research documentation, avoiding plagiarism or reviewing the rules of punctuation and grammar. (Click the dropdown menu above to see more services.)

The Writing Center is NOT an editing service. We do not proofread. Our job is to help you better understand and improve your writing. We will give you suggestions on how you can improve the overall content, format & organization of ideas.
