We encourage you to schedule an appointment with a tutor, visit the walk-in Writing Center in Fredericksburg, and take advantage of the numerous online resources designed to supplement your coursework at Germanna.

Individual appointments

If you prefer an individual appointment with a tutor, please visit or call one of the ACE offices, or submit an online request for an appointment. Online writing tutoring is also available 24/7 through Smarthinking.

Fredericksburg Writing Center

Walk-in writing consultations are available for students who are enrolled in credit courses. Faculty, staff, and tutors are available to help students with writing assignments across all academic disciplines. Whether the coursework is a descriptive paragraph, a lab report, or a research paper, our consultants will provide assistance with understanding the assignment, citation styles, grammar rules, organization, and developing a thesis statement.

There are computers available for students to work independently on writing assignments. Our goal is to help students become confident college writers; therefore, consultants will not edit papers. Instead, our goal is to empower students with the ability to become independent writers.
