The Senior Honors Thesis program offers tutorial assistance to a limited number of undergraduate thesis writers. Thesis Tutors are advanced RWIT tutors who are assigned to individual thesis writers during all or part of the thesis-drafting process. Tutors set up an individual support plans that adapt to the needs of writers and may include cycles of written feedback on drafts, regular face-to-face meetings, planning sessions, and more. While thesis tutors will not provide copyediting services, they can also support writers looking to develop their own copyediting strategies.
Thesis Tutors are available in late-Fall, Winter, and Spring terms on a limited basis. In some cases, support may be available during interim periods.
Writers who request assistance are not guaranteed tutors. To request a Senior Honor Thesis Tutor, email RWIT’s Faculty Director with the following information:
Before thesis tutors are assigned, writers will be invited to interview with RWIT's Director. Formal approval of the request by the faculty thesis advisor is also required before a tutor can begin work. We recommend that writers contact advisors before submitting their original request.
