Apply for a Writing Mentor

Ford Fellow Elana Rosenthal ’15 writes in:

Are you already overwhelmed by that 15-page paper at the end of your syllabus? Does drafting an English essay stress out your neuroscience-majoring soul? Does the thought of writing simply make you flop?

Apply now for a Writing Mentor, a personal tutor who will meet with you privately to help you with your writing. Mentors can help you at all stages of the writing process—generating ideas; structuring your essay; improving grammar, clarity, and style; or simply managing your time—and will meet with you weekly to address all of your writing worries and woes. If you participate, a specially trained sophomore, junior, or senior will meet with you throughout the semester.

We work with students of all writing abilities and in all disciplines, and all services are, of course, free.

Applications are available here. Please apply by midnight on Friday, February 5th. We will notify new mentees by the 10th, and hold a reception for new mentor-mentee pairs on Friday, February 12th, at 4:15 p.m. in Allbritton 311.

Application Deadline: midnight on Friday, February 5
