Our staff and coaches strive to provide as much consistency of experience as possible for students using Writing Center services. However, due to the nature of writing and reader experience, perspectives will differ, though not markedly. For instance, some of our coaches are trained in specific disciplines and will naturally notice areas of your writing that some other coaches trained in other disciplines will not, or at least not as quickly. Coaches are encouraged to be honest and fair regarding the manner in which they relate to your writings, and not all experiences will be the same. Variations in feedback can, in fact, be quite beneficial to the student since no single coach can spot everything in one session. That said, our coaches are trained according to the same basic standards of grammar and punctuation, style, formatting, and composition pedagogy. Thus, while not every coach will interpret your work the same, the variations in the kinds of advice coaches can offer are actually somewhat limited. The job of the student at this point is to assess what the coaches experienced as readers and decide if their concerns are warranted. Remember, you are the expert in your topic as the primary researcher or creative author.
