Writing Partners Program

The Writing Partners Program offers extended one-to-one tutoring for students who are less experienced writers, who are concerned about meeting writing demands in multiple courses, or who simply want to improve their overall writing process. Writing Partners are tutors who are matched with specific students to provide individualized guidance and support throughout the semester or the entire academic year. Whereas a Writing Workshop Tutor works with students on particular writing assignments, a Writing Partner develops an ongoing working relationship with particular students across multiple writing assignments with an aim to improving not only writing product but also writing practice. The schedule of the Writing Partners Program operates independently of the regular Writing Workshop schedule; Writing Partners and their students together decide when and where to meet.

To request a Writing Partner, send an email to wwcoordinator@williams.edu. (Please note that limited numbers of Writing Partners are available, so be advised to make your request as early in the semester as possible.)
