The Writing Center - Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy

The Writing Center

The Writing Center was founded in November 2004 to assist all IMSA students in developing their writing, and to assist faculty and staff in integrating writing into their instructional process. We provide peer tutoring one-on-one in an informal, friendly setting, in addition to arranging study groups, workshops, discussion forums, and other events geared toward the study and appreciation of writing. IMSA staff are also welcome to use our tutors and resources to help improve their writing.

The Writing Center website is currently under construction, so check back soon to find out more information about our program, as well as links to other writing centers and writing resources online, news and information about about literacy at IMSA and across the nation, and other exciting features.

While our website is under construction, we are open for business and ready to help at ANY stage of the writing process, from brainstorming and thesis statement creation to revising a paper that has already received a grade from a teacher.

In the Writing Center (A109) during these hours:

  • Monday, Tuesday, Thursday from 9:30 am – 4:45 pm
  • Wednesday from 9:30am – 4:15 pm
  • Friday from 11:00 am – 4:45 pm

In the IRC during these hours:

Tutors are available in all of the Residence Halls during the evening hours. See tutor posters in each hall for names and room numbers of the tutors!

We look forward to helping you become a stronger and more eloquent writer!  For more information, contact Erin Micklo, IMSA Writing Specialist and Writing Center Director, at 630-907-5489 or by email  emicklo@imsa.edu
