Second Language Writing

Our mission is to provide writing support and guidance to Carleton's English as a Second or Other Language (ESOL) students, and to help them develop as independent writers and thinkers. Multilingual students (international and U.S) may work one-on-one for an entire term with a trained and experienced writing consultant who will be available to provide writing support for one to three hours per week. Writing consultants work as facilitators, collaborating with writers at any stage of the writing process, and provide feedback on content, form, and language.

If English is not your main first language and you believe you might benefit from working individually with a writing consultant, email Renata Fitzpatrick, Coordinator of Support for Multilingual Writers, call her at x5998, or stop by her office in 420D on 4th Libe, across from the penguin.

If you have students who might benefit from working individually with a writing tutor, please email, call, or click here to learn more about how you can refer a student to Renata Fitzpatrick online.
