During a writing conference, your tutor will examine the structural features of your draft: thesis, organization and the development of your argument. Your tutor also will identify errors in grammar, mechanics and style and work with you to revise these errors.
Developing the ability to communicate in a clear, organized and effective way is a central goal of the liberal arts education at Hamilton. The Writing Center provides resources and individual writing conferences to help students become better writers at every level and in every discipline. Peer tutoring is a pillar of the Writing Center.
My tutor was amazing. She listened to my questions and helped make suggestions about where I could add information, explain more, and tighten prose. She was critical without criticizing, clearly explained concerns, and then gave her suggestions.
