Writing Support

Embedded Mentor Program

The Embedded Mentor Program places undergraduate and graduate student mentors in ELWR classes in order to provide students with one-on-one writing support. If your class is assigned a mentor, you will be required to meet regularly with your mentor who will individualize instruction so that it meets your specific writing needs.  

Embedded mentors are capable writers who have been trained to understand the demands of ELWR courses and help you meet those demands. The mentors can work with you to address a range of challenges, including developing good topics, constructing an interesting claim, organizing your argument, supporting that argument with evidence from the readings, and crafting clear and coherent paragraphs and sentences. They will not proofread your papers, but they will help you locate and address problems with grammar or style.  

The Writing Center

The Writing Center + Critical Expression Hub supports all writers on campus--every writer, any project--and promotes writing as a tool for learning.  They are located on the lower level of Geisel Library.

OASIS

OASIS—or the Office of Academic Support and Instructional Services—provides individual tutoring and workshops in many subjects, including writing and language skills.
