What To Expect

Any writing class assignment can be addressed and developed during a tutoring session. This includes reading comprehension, assignment prompts, essays, proposals, source evaluations, research papers, and the like. Through discrete activities and writing tasks, tutors help students learn how to read texts closely, develop critical thinking, make connections, analyze, synthesize, and revise drafts. They do not edit or proofread student papers, but support students in becoming their own writing authorities.

The most productive tutoring sessions are those for which students come prepared. Before each session, remember to complete, think about, and take notes on assigned readings. In addition, bring and be prepared to share with your tutor, the following items:

  • Readings;
  • Writing prompt;
  • Rough and final drafts of past assignments (with teacher comments);
  • Rough draft(s) of current assignments;
  • All notes and materials from class.

It is important to attend tutoring sessions even when there is nothing specific on which to work. Bring course readings and materials to discuss, or work on specific writing tasks that need improvement (thesis statements, quote introductions, topic sentences, etc.).
