Find us Remotely!

The writing center is here for you during remote learning. We have two remote options—one, a Zoom session with a tutor, happens in real time. The second option is to receive written feedback from a tutor on your piece. When you sign up using the link above, please specify in the "description" box whether you'd prefer ZOOM or WRITTEN FEEDBACK. Then, you'll be contacted via email about next steps.

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 editor, 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 editor 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 editor 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.
