The NMSU Grants Writing Center is learner-centered.  Tutors do not just line edit people’s work.  Instead, they encourage students and community members to reflect on their writing.  When people are actively involved in the revision process, they hone not only their writing but also their thinking.  They can then apply these skills in the classroom and beyond.  This doesn’t mean that the Writing Center doesn’t work on grammar and punctuation issues; tutors just do so in a way that encourages active engagement.
