Tutoring Options

Writing Fellows

Our Writing Fellows Can Help

  • Assist students with basic grammar, punctuation & sentence structure.
  • Assist in peer reviewing, speeches, lab reports, and journal entries.
  • Providing clarification/interpretation of written information to ESL & COLLS students. This can include reading comprehension and homework explanation.

Face-to-Face Tutoring

Face to Face TutoringOur fellows will work with each visitor for approximately 15-30 minutes at a time. This is to ensure that all students needing help are not kept waiting too long. The student may input the suggestions for revision elsewhere and then return to Writing Fellows as often as they want.

Students may visit for additional English grammar and punctuation assistance during our one-on-one English tutoring sessions.

Classroom peer reviewing is available. Faculty should contact for details.

To the students visiting a Writing Fellow:

  • ƒ Bring a typed, double-spaced copy of your paper 
  • ƒ Provide instructor’s direction and rubric
  • ƒ Visit the Writing Fellows well in advance of your deadline
  • The day before a paper is due is not enough time

Online Tutoring

Online TutoringAs a convenience to our students, we are able to assist you online. Writing Fellows are skilled and trained students at Schoolcraft College. Once you have submitted your assignment, a Fellow will review it and then respond electronically with suggestions for revision.
