Sweetland Peer Tutoring Center Services
The Peer Tutoring Center is part of the Sweetland Center for Writing and is housed in G219 Angell Hall as well as several satellite locations: the Undergraduate Library, Alice Lloyd Hall, the Duderstadt Center, and North Quad.
Sweetland-trained peer tutors offer traditional face-to-face tutoring as well as online tutoring via the Online Writing Lab (OWL) and Synchronous Online Writing Lab (SyncOWL). Tutors operate according to the Peer Tutoring Program Mission Statement. Writers of all skill levels can talk with our tutors about papers from across the disciplines. We’re not an editing service, but we’re eager to talk with writers who bring in academic essays, cover letters, resumes, application essays, multimodal compositions, creative pieces, or questions they have, be they about global concerns like style or local ones like mechanics. Writers can visit us at any stage of the writing process: We can help you brainstorm if you have nothing written, we can help you develop ideas in your drafts, or we can help you develop strategies for polishing your own prose. Come visit us at the Peer Tutoring Center today!
Guidelines for Traditional, Face-to-Face Tutoring Sessions:
- Tutorials run on a first-come-first-serve basis. They last 30-60 minutes, depending on whether other writers are waiting.
- Peer Tutors cannot assist writers with take-home exams unless the professor has given Sweetland written permission to provide assistance with them.
- Peer Tutors serve registered undergraduate students, but they cannot help graduate students. Graduate students should set up an appointment with a faculty member through Sweetland’s Writing Workshop in North Quad.
- Peer Tutors can help writers with collaboratively written pieces if 50% or more of the collaborators are present for the tutorial.
- Writers cannot be required to visit the Peer Tutoring Centers.
