Peer Tutors Programs
The Writing Tutors Program provides quality writing assistance to advancing CAS students and supports faculty who teach writing in the disciplines. We work with departments and faculty from across the College, learning from faculty about writing in their fields and assisting them to integrate a more intensive focus on teaching writing into their courses.
Once we decide to partner with a course, we will meet with the faculty member to learn about his/her expectations for student writing and to discuss how best to create 2-3 occasions where peer tutors can provide written comments and meet individually with students about their drafts for writing assignments. The tutors are mentored by EWP lecturers who also takes care of logistical details and work to synthesize the knowledge generated from the tutoring process into a couple, short, in-class writing workshops.

The Writing Partners Program pairs trained, NYU peer tutors with international and/or multilingual undergraduates who would like to have regular tutoring and ongoing support in their efforts to meet the demands of university writing. Writing Partners will meet with international and/or multilingual students weekly or bi-weekly throughout the semester. They will act as collaborators, supporting students at every stage of the writing process: from getting started, to analyzing evidence and developing an argument, to acquiring language and a deeper understanding of discourse conventions, to gaining command over syntax and grammar.
