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.
We value all students 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.

Study Sessions typically are offered as 1-hour sessions twice per week. They are designed for students to get questions answered, learn helpful study skills, and receive focused instruction from a student leader who knows the material and is equipped to help. Keeping in mind that study sessions are not designed to re-teach classroom material, students are encouraged to bring notes and assignments to sessions and ask specific questions based on the material they bring. The Tutor will typically visit the class during the first couple of class sessions to introduce him or herself and survey the class to determine the best time to offer these sessions.
