Academic Support

The Tutoring & Writing Center (TWC) provides free individual and group peer tutoring, for both writing and academic subjects, and Supplemental Instruction (SI) sessions. Trained student tutors, recommended by faculty, offer feedback and assistance on an appointment or drop-in basis. Writing tutors consult with students on all aspects of the writing process and on any writing assignments. Writing tutors are also paired with each section of LAS 110: Intersections, and writing fellows are available for writing-intensive courses. Subject tutors work with individuals or small groups to better understand class material and assignments. SI sessions are peer-led group reviews for historically difficult classes. The TWC, co-directed by the Director of Writing and the Tutoring Coordinator, is located in the library, facilitating close collaboration between librarians, tutoring and writing staff in their support of student learning.
