Appointment Tutoring

Appointment Tutoring, Writing

Welcome

Welcome to our Appointment Tutoring service! Our services are designed to support writers at all stages of the writing process. Whatever written assignment you have—a response paper, a report, a literary essay, or a research project—we invite you to visit us early and often. You don't have to have a complete draft to work with one of our friendly tutors. Bring a prompt, a rough idea, or just reading notes, and we will work with you to build a solid foundation for your paper. Explore our three main service formats to see which works best for you: AppointmentDrop-in, and Weekly. Or, check out our select Workshops (Coming Soon), Writer Hours (Coming Soon), and RRR Week Writing Retreat services (Coming soon).

About this Service

Schedule a 50-minute in-person or virtual Writing Tutoring Appointment in advance or same-day to discuss your work in depth with a peer tutor. This format is ideal for writers who are looking for tools to solidify their ideas and refine their prose.
