  • A Note for ASPIRE (Adult Studies) Students

    The Simpson University Writing Center offers online tutoring using Skype as a free service to ASPIRE students. These tutorials are designed to accommodate the writing needs of students who are currently enrolled in ASPIRE but are unable to visit the Writing Center at its on-campus location. If you are an ASPIRE student and would like to schedule a skype appointment, please email us at or telephone us at 226-4954 during regular business hours. Once you have scheduled your appointment, please be sure to email us the document (e.g., essay, report, written project) with which you would like assistance the morning of your appointment, and we will read through it in preparation for the online tutorial. Please send all documents in Microsoft Word .doc format.

The location of the Writing Center is a nicely appointed two-room suite that features a front foyer (with free coffee available) and a second room used for tutoring consultations. Students may use the foyer as a waiting area prior to their appointments and as a quiet reading room.
