At the Writing Center, we conduct free, one-on-one sessions with undergraduate
and graduate students to assist them with course writing assignments, research
papers, theses, and personal statements. We schedule sessions that start on
the hour and last either 25 minutes or 50 minutes. Trained graduate and
undergraduate peer tutors help your students develop and focus their ideas,
implement an organizational strategy, utilize evidence proficiently, and clarify
their syntax and diction. Please let your students know that we welcome walk-in
sessions but encourage scheduled appointments.
To schedule an appointment with one of our tutors, please click here. If students are
unable to schedule your appointment online for any reason please have them call 202-994-3765 and speak with one of our
receptionists. In addition, let your students know about our new
AIM service for instant access to a tutor for quick questions. The AIM screen
name is gwWritingCenter. Also please direct them to our 'News' page about upcoming workshops!
Last year we held approximately 3,000 sessions with students from 117
departments in all schools of the university.
We hope that you will encourage
your students to make use of our services. In fact, if you would like a peer
tutor to speak to your class for a few minutes about the Writing Center, we
would be delighted to send someone. Alternatively, you may want us to send you
brochures that you can distribute to students yourself. In either case, simply e-mail or call us anytime during our open hours to make a request.
