Writing Tutoring at Fitchburg State

Individual writing tutoring is available for all students at Fitchburg State University. Writing peer tutors work together with writers at all levels and in all areas of study. We support all stages of the writing process, including brainstorming, drafting, revising, and interpreting faculty feedback. We also help with many types of assignments:  papers, presentations, group projects, and more.

It's important for you to know that we do not write on your paper! You are the author. Together, we notice problems, but you make any changes once we have explained the issue, and you make the final decisions. We ask students to bring the instructions for the assignment to the session, any course materials that you'll need to use to write your paper, and a typed copy of your paper if you have a draft written already. We with a discussion of the assignment or writing project; our focus is on clear communication.

Walk-In Writing Center

Walk-in tutoring for writing is available Monday-Friday in the Tutor Center. For more information, please view the schedule of tutors and any additional courses/subjects they tutor.

Reserve a time to work one-on-one with a writing tutor in SSC (follow the step-by-step guide). Students may schedule one appointment within a 24-hour period, up to 5 days in advance. Appointments close 12 hours prior to the scheduled time.

Any time slots that are not booked are open for walk-in help. Walk-in tutoring is great for quick questions about issues like grammar, citations, and other topics that don't necessarily require a full 30-minute session.

Please email Jen Abbott or come by Hammond 306F if you have any questions about walk-in writing tutoring.
