The purpose of this thesis is to explore what practices and theories are used in three Northeast Ohio writing centers. The goal was to find out how important of a role flexibility and adaptability plays in each center. As a tutor in each, personal experience was used as well as interviewing each director in order to find out the individual pedagogies that were employed. After these interviews were conducted, the results were compared to recent strategies used in writing center theory to see how they are applied to flexibility.
