Hiram College

The Writing Center:

Distance Tutoring

Need help with your writing this summer? As always, trained writing assistants are ready to help you with papers at any stage in the writing process. 

While we have no face-to-face hours in the Writing Center in the summer term, you can still schedule an appointment and set up a virtual appointment with a peer Writing Assistant.

Students who wish to work with a Writing Assistant should send a tutoring request to WritingCenter@hiram.edu. The request should include, if possible:

  • A copy of the document the student wishes to work on (preferably in Word format: .doc or .docx)
  • A copy of prompt (the assignment the professor gave to students in the class).

Writing Assistants should respond in approximately 24 hours (longer on weekends) in order to set up either e-mail tutoring or tutoring via Zoom or FaceTime (to be arranged between Writing Assistant and student). 

For more information, contact Jeffrey Swenson at SwensonJC@hiram.edu

“I had heard that Hiram was a big writing school, but never thought much about what that would mean. Now, I understand that the writing here is truly all-encompassing. There is no escaping it. I did not intend on avoiding it, but did not plan on honing it as my craft. Now, I ask myself what I am writing, why I am writing, and how it can be better said. In short, I care.”
