CAS Writing Coaching
CAS Writing Coaches are undergraduate students from a range of academic disciplines including psychology, biology, history, business, and mathematics. Our tutors are prepared to help you during any stage of the writing process from brainstorming and development, planning and drafting, through organization, revision, and editing.
CAS is a place where all students are valued as writers and critical thinkers. During writing sessions, students will be actively engaged in discussion and activity with their writing.
Writing Coaches are located on the main floor of Nease Library in the Cafe Savoie area across from the MAC Computers.

The scope of CAS Writing Tutoring
- Our writing tutors are trained to read critically and to engage you in the process of developing and revising your writing. Our goals are to help you develop competence and confidence with your writing.
- We are not simply a drop-off editing service. We will certainly discuss sentence-level issues and proofreading and editing strategies, but we believe students should make all final writing decisions.
- We track all students who visit CAS with a summary report of their writing consultation. Reports can be e mailed to professors for verification and feedback upon request of the student.
- Writing Consultants cannot predict or explain grades received on writing assignments. We encourage you to speak directly to your instructor if you have questions about grades or assignment assessments.
