Undergraduate Sessions

At RWIT, you can meet one-on-one with an undergraduate tutor to discuss a paper, research project, or multimedia assignment. Tutors use a facilitative, rather than directive, approach in engaging writers in an active dialogue about their work. Whether you are brainstorming, drafting, or polishing, our tutors can provide feedback that will help you create final products of which you can be proud.

How to Schedule a Session

RWIT welcomes walk-in clients; however, if you would like to guarantee time with a tutor, we recommend that you schedule a session.  RWIT tutors are trained as general readers. All tutors are capable of assisting students with projects, papers and assignments in any discipline.  Before you make an appointment, please look over What to Expect at a SessionHow to Prepare for a Session, and the policies listed below.

In collaboration with the Spanish, Portuguese, and French and Italian Departments, RWIT offers tutors who are able to tutor writers for papers in Spanish, French, or Italian during Center hours. These tutors are flagged in our timetable online. In the future, RWIT will expand this program to other languages.

Please address any questions or comments to the RWIT Head Tutor.
