The Betty B. Schantz Tutorial Center

Betty B. Schantz was a long-time supporter of her Alma Mater. In 2008, Betty designated development funds that she had raised for support of Tutorial Services. This support enabled Lock Haven University to establish the Betty B. Schantz Tutorial Center. This Betty B. Schantz Tutorial Center, which started in the former library at East Campus, is now located and thrives in the Stephanie A. Wollock Learning Commons on the second floor of the Stevenson Library.

LHU Writing Center Information:

What you can expect from us:

  • We will review your paper (with you) for structure, flow and thought development.  We will ask questions for you to consider when you revise your work.
  • We focus on your development as a writer.  We are not an editing service, but we will look for patterns of error.
  • We will be respectful and engage with you a facilitative learning environment.\

What we expect from you:

  • Visit the Writing Center or submit your paper with ample time for revision.  Please allow up to three (3) business days for submitted papers to be returned.  
  • When possible, come with or submit the assignment directions and draft materials with the paper.
  • Take responsibility for all final drafts and revisions.  It is your work!

Submitting Your Work Virtually:

In preparation for a session to work on your writing, you can attach a copy of your paper and if possible, the assignment directions and draft materials in an email to the address below.  In addition, give us a little bit of information about the paper and the class it is for.   We will reach out to you to set up an appointment to go over your paper one-on-one either in person or through zoom.

Additional Writing Help:

Writing and Literacy Engagement Studio (WALES)

The Writing and Literacy Engagement Studio (WALES) at BU enjoys easing the writing process for all BU, LHU, or MU graduate or undergraduate student students of every major. We are a free resource that offers peer support for undergraduate and graduate writers at any stage of their reading and writing process. We are a diverse staff of peer writing consultants who represent a variety of backgrounds and majors and share the common goal of working with you to develop your skills and help you grow as a writer or a reader. You set the agenda for the appointment—whether you're concerned about getting started, or about clarity, grammar, organization, citations, or any other aspect of writing or the English language.

Link for WALES: 

WALES will offer online consulting through Zoom to any BU, LHU, or MU graduate or undergraduate student, through which you will be able to speak and share your screen with a WALES Consultant. To arrange for an online session, send an appointment request to from your university email address at least 24 hours in advance.

We will monitor email during the day, and you should receive confirmation of your online appointment within 12-24 hours of making your request. Our space in Bakeless 206 on the BU campus will not be open this summer.

At the time of the appointment, please log into your university email account where you should receive a link to an online room. You will be asked to provide your student number and other information, as you would in a face-to-face session in the WALES.

Who uses the WALES?

Though we work effectively with inexperienced writers, we also work effectively with upper-level undergraduate and graduate students from many disciplines. Students who use us are those who care about their writing and care about developing their abilities as writers. Writing is a process, and good writers recognize the benefits of working on a draft with an audience.

What happens during a tutoring session?

You control what happens during your tutoring session. We can work together to address issues related to organization, thesis, confusion about an assignment, how to get started with the paper, MLA/APA/Chicago or other formats, or problems with mechanics. Typically (but not always) we have writers read papers out loud to help them catch their own problems and errors. We are confident that your paper will generally improve as a result of the session, but what we're most excited about is helping you to develop as a writer with each visit.

What does NOT happen during a tutoring session?

You can't drop off your paper and have us fix it. We help you work to improve your own draft. We're happy to work with you, and we're happy to talk about mechanics or what you don't understand, but you are responsible for catching simple editing mistakes.

We are a great audience and enjoy discussing your paper or anything writing or reading related to you. We don't judge what you've written or your abilities. Wherever you are as a writer or reader, we want to help you to become stronger overall.

We also don't talk to your faculty or anyone about your session, but if you ask us to, we will send an email to your faculty notifying them that you worked with us.




Peer Research Consultants

Peer Research Consultants

Who are Peer Research Consultants?

Peer Research Consultants (PRCs) are students hired and trained through The North Hall Library and The MU Learning Center. The purpose of PRCs is to support Mansfield University / Commonwealth U students with written research projects by providing research assistance and information about library and Learning Center services and resources. PRCs engage with other students one-on-one, in small groups, with other tutors, and librarians.  For Commonwealth students at LHU or Bloomsburg, sessions can be scheduled via zoom.

What can Peer Research Consultants help me with?

Research assistance may include:

  • using the library catalog,
  • simple database searching,
  • locating library materials,
  • peer-level guidance on planning and executing written research projects, and
  • referrals to library and other faculty when additional support is needed.
