Sweetland Peer Tutoring Centers
Peer Tutoring Centers are part of the Sweetland Center for Writing and are located campus-wide. Our main center is housed in G219 Angell Hall with satellite locations in 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 SyncOWL (Synchronous Online Writing Lab) and OWL (Online Writing Lab). 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 from brainstorming to developing ideas in drafts, or we can help develop strategies for polishing prose.
