Request a Writing Partner

Ask for a writing partner if you plan on using the Writing Center frequently over the course of the semester. This program allows you to meet weekly with the same tutor, rather than starting over with a different person each time you come to the Writing Center. It also allows you to be matched with a tutor who fits your specific situation. At your first meeting, you and your tutor will set some goals for the semester.

Location & Hours

We are located on the ground floor of Bailey/Howe Library, down the main staircase and to the right.

Mon.–Thurs., 10 am–9 pm
Fri., 10 am–5 pm
Sun., 5 pm–9 pm

Getting the Most out of Your Tutoring Sessions

Bring a copy of the assignment and of any materials you will be using in writing your paper.

Tell the tutor what you hope to accomplish in the session.

Tell the tutor about strategies that have worked for you in the past.

Online Tutoring

In most cases, sessions are more effective when tutors can meet with students in person. However, if coming to Bailey/Howe Library would present challenges for you (for example, if you live outside of Chittenden country, or if you have a disability that would make online tutoring more effective), you can request an online appointment. Send an email to Sheila Boland Chira.
