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.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Writing Center?
The Writing Center is a tutorial service that assists The Gregory School students in all phases of the writing process, including finding an argument, organizing evidence, improving style, and developing good editing skills
What happens during an appointment?

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.

Who uses the Writing Center?

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.

Our Tutors

Tutors are hired on the basis of faculty recommendations, writing samples, and personal interviews. They receive extensive training before they begin tutoring.

  • In a writing session, the student writer and the student tutor work together to navigate the process of writing and revision.

  • On Writing Concisely: Eliminate redundant words, delete unnecessary qualifiers, and reduce prepositional phrases.

  • You should keep sentences short for the same reason you keep paragraphs short: they’re easier to read and understand.
