Writing Coaching

Our program supports writers in a variety of disciplines and a range of courses. Our coaches meet individually with students about:

Writing Coach appointments are scheduled for one hour. You can bring a draft of your paper for a course, or a personal statement for graduate or professional school, or meet to brainstorm ideas for writing. We will have a conversation about your writing and help develop a plan for the next step, whether it is outlining, researching, drafting, or revising.  

While our coaches do not proofread or edit papers, they do provide feedback and suggestions on sentence structure, paragraph development, and the overall flow of the paper. Our coaches also work with non-native speakers of English.

Our writing coaches do not support Writing Program courses (including Expository Writing and Basic Composition). Please visit the Writing Centers to learn more about their programs and how to sign up for tutoring.

Asynchronous Paper Feedback

In addition to one-on-one appointments, we also offer online writing coaching asynchronously. You can upload your paper to Canvas.

Once a writing coach receives and reviews your paper, you will receive an email with a completed rubric and feedback guide containing the coach's comments within 72 hours.
