The Writing Center welcomes all student writers, from first-year students to those in graduate programs, from students who find writing challenging to experienced writers looking to be even more effective.

Every writer can benefit from feedback and individual attention. Tutors are trained to support both native speakers of English and English Language Learners to develop and enhance writing skills. Tutors are trained to work with large-scale Graduate-level projects. Additionally, Graduate students can request to work with the Director or Professional Tutor. During half-hour and hour-long tutoring sessions, trained tutors assist students with any stages of the writing process: selecting a topic, brainstorming, outlining, drafting, organization, research, documentation, and revision. Appointments are required. Accommodations for online tutoring can be made via Zoom conferencing software upon request.

Call 518-454-5299 or stop by the Academic Success Center, on the second floor of Saint Joseph Hall, to schedule a session.

Come check out our Writing Lab: On Fridays, from 10am-2pm in Albertus 112. This is a time for you to work in a casual environment, where you will have access to a tutor who can answer any questions as they come up!
