dc.description.abstract This study was conducted at a writing center at an English medium university in Lebanon in attempt to examine students‘ and tutors‘ perceptions about the effectiveness of the center in terms of improving student writing. To gather data, a questionnaire was given to 42 students upon visiting the center, interviews were conducted with five tutors, and the researcher kept an anecdotal record. The results show that the majority of students are satisfied with the tutorials, and this satisfaction could be correlated with the fact that the tutors answered their questions, helped them improve their writing, and offered them useful feedback. The tutors are also satisfied with the tutorials, and they are flexible in their tutoring style. The anecdotal record adds to the center‘s effectiveness. en_US
