WRITING TUTORING

At The Writing Center of Princeton, we teach your student to become a more persuasive, confident, and polished writer. We offer a personalized approach and guided practice using research-based techniques and real school assignments. Our strategies have been tested with over 3,000 students.

 

Our goal is to provide students with:

  • The skills needed to analyze, synthesize, and respond in different written genres
  • User-friendly frameworks that encourage original thinking, close reading, and connecting core texts to contemporary concerns
  • Writing guides tailored to specific disciplines

 

Emphasis in each lesson is on:

  • Content
  • Purpose
  • Audience

 

Target areas in the tutoring session may include:

  • Developing a point of view
  • Critical thinking exercises
  • Analyzing and interpreting texts
  • Comparing and contrasting texts
  • Brainstorming
  • Developing a persuasive argument
  • Using textual evidence
  • Research skills, including evaluating evidence from secondary sources
  • Easy-to-use tips for managing citations, footnotes, and bibliographies
  • Refining diction, grammar, and sentence structure

 

At the end of our work together, each student is provided with a personalized toolkit of techniques useful for future writing assignments.

 

Each lesson is designed in response to the client's particular needs. All forms of instruction are also available via Skype.
