Second Language Writing Support

The mission of the Second Language Writing program is to provide writing support and guidance to Carleton's second- language students, and to help them develop as independent writers and thinkers. Students who identify themselves as having a primary language other than English may work one-on-one with a trained and experienced writing tutor who will be available to provide writing support for one to three hours per week. Second-language writing tutors work as facilitators, collaborating with writers at any stage of the writing process, and provide feedback on content, form, and language.

If you are a second-language writer and believe you might benefit from working individually with a writing tutor, email Renata Fitzpatrick, Second Language Writing Coordinator, call her at x5998, or stop by her office in 420D on 4th Libe, across from the penguin.
