University Writing Center


    We serve UMES undergraduates across the disciplines. 
     We are tutoring online for Spring 2021
    To access the My Writing Center Online site, log in through the UMES portal; the Writing Center is the last app there.

    Director:  Dr. Terry Kundell, 

    The University Writing Center is dedicated to providing the University community one-on-one assistance with all types of writing at all stages of the writing process.  
    NOTE:  The Writing Center tutors will help you and provide you with skills to do your own writing, revising, and editing, but they should not and will not write, revise, or edit for you.  

    The University Writing Center is staffed by a half-time Director, who has a Ph.D. in Rhetoric and Linguistics, an Assistant Director, who is one class from completing her English degree, and part-time peer tutors from various majors, who are selected based on their strong writing and interpersonal skills and trained to assist students with writing issues across the disciplines. 

    With our online scheduling program, My Writing Center Online, you can check availability and schedule appointments in advance.  Just log in through My UMES, and select the Writing Center icon.   

    You can cancel or change appointments online up to 1/2 hour before the appointment time.  If you miss 2 scheduled appointments, you will be blocked from the online scheduling system and will have to contact Dr. Kundell to discuss the issue.
