Whatever your grade or skill level, you can benefit from working one-on-one with our experienced tutors.
How it works
The Gregory School Writing Center is a collaborative environment where students across grade levels and disciplines come to work on the process of writing. We strive to provide encouraging, personalized feedback on the planning, outlining, drafting, revising, and polishing of written assignments in order to maximize student progress and self-confidence.
To meet with a Writing Center tutor, you can make an appointment in advance, or you can simply drop in. Come with whatever you've got — an assignment, ideas, rough notes, or a draft in progress.
When a student writer comes into the writing center, the student tutor greets the writer and starts a conversation about the assignment, working to identify the writer's concerns and priorities for the session. We ask that the student writer please bring the assignment sheet/guidelines for the piece he/she would like to work on. In the session itself, the student writer and the student tutor work together to navigate the process of writing and revision.
We work with students of all ages. We see students from virtually all disciplines. We serve both inexperienced and experienced student writers, offering an audience for and response to their written work.
