Help With Writing

Writing Tutors

Writing help is available from peer tutors to all students throughout the week. Students may either make an appointment by stopping by the writing tutor desk in the Reading Room of the Library on the second floor of the library during tutoring hours or just walk in for help. Student tutors work with students at all levels and in all disciplines. They can help review grammar, plan research, write outlines, understand essay structures, cite correctly, develop analytical writing, and revise work.

Beginning September 15:
Sunday 8-10pm
Monday 8-10pm
Tuesday 8-10pm
Wednesday 8-10pm
Thursday 8-10pm

Questions about the program can be directed to Noelle Murphy, nmurphy@bennington.edu or via x4664.
