Center for Writing and Speaking
The Partners Program offers students the opportunity to be matched with a tutor “partner” for the semester or the year. The program is recommended for students who want to work regularly and consistently on writing or speaking on a weekly basis, regardless of whether or not they have an upcoming assignment. The program may be used for (but is not limited to): creative writing, practice of conversational English language skills, improving grammar and pronunciation, practice of college-level academic discourse, analytical speech and writing, senior seminar writing and speaking assignments, and reducing speech anxiety. This one to one, constant interaction between partners makes for a fruitful and comfortable tutoring space where the tutor and tutee can get to know each other. The partners program is open to all members of the student body—details about the application process will be sent to the student body via email at the beginning of each semester.
