Albright Writing Center

Information for ADP and Online Students

What is the Writing Center?

The Albright Writing Center is a free peer tutoring service to assist you in writing for all of your Albright courses. We can assist with any aspect of writing for any course. In a one-on-one session, online chat session, or through e-mailed feedback, we will guide you in strategies for writing and revising. Our philosophy is to provide you with ideas and resources as we guide you in making your own changes. The center is located on the main Reading campus on the first floor of the Administration Building. You can view our current hours of operation or make an appointment through our online records and appointment system. For more information on our services, click here for our flyer on “Writing Center Services for ADP and Online Students.”

Can you help me with research skills?

We can assist you with research skills, but for library-based research we also encourage you to contact the college’s reference librarians at Gingrich Library: 610-921-7211.

I have additional questions. How can I contact you?

If you have questions, please contact the Writing Center at writingcenter@albright.edu or (610) 921-7540. The director, Rachel Liberatore, can be reached at rliberatore@albright.edu, in her office in the Writing Center on the first floor of the Administration Building, or at (610) 921-7854.  

What if I can’t visit in person?

ADP or online students are strongly encouraged to visit the Writing Center in person. However, ADP or online students have additional options due to the nature of the program and can also have a telephone session, online chat session or e-mailed margin comments. For more information, click here for our flyer on “Writing Center Services for ADP and Online Students.”

Online Chat Tutoring

Our new online chat tutoring appointments allow you to have an interactive discussion about writing even if you are unable to visit in person. During online chat, a whiteboard is available on which you and the tutor can brainstorm or pull up an essay. Online chat appointments can be made for 30 or 60 minutes, just like an in-person appointment. Please click here for our flyer on how to sign up for an online chat appointment.
