The greatest sign of a success for a [tutor] is to be able to say,

“The [writers] are now working as if I did not exist.”

~Maria Montessori

“If you would not be forgotten, as soon as you’re dead and rotten,

~Benjamin Franklin, Poor Richard’s Almanac

Plagiarism Policy:

The Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary defines plagiarizing: “to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one’s own; use (another’s production) without crediting the source.”

Plagiarism will NOT be tolerated. All sources must be documented in MLA citation style. Style guides can be found online at OWL Purdue and Dianahacker.com. Hard copy style guides are available for use in the writing center. Plagiarized material must be rewritten for partial credit.

Attendance Policy:

Attendance is required. Missing more than one week of class (two classes) without an excused absence will lower your grade by one letter grade. Unexcused late arrivals and early departures will count as partial absences. If you miss class, obtain notes and assignments from another student. Be responsible and exchange phone numbers and email addresses.
