Drop-In Tutoring

Drop-In Tutoring, Writing


Welcome to our Drop-in 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: Appointment, Drop-in, and Weekly. Or, check out our select Workshops (Coming Soon), Writer Hours (Coming Soon), and RRR Week Writing Retreat services (Coming soon) which will return Fall 2023.

About this Service

Writers can visit us for a 30-minute in-person or virtual session with a peer tutor to discuss strategies for strengthening their paper. This format is particularly ideal for writers who are seeking focused feedback on specific aspects of their essay.
