Strategies for responding to student writing

GWS tutors -- experienced writers and teachers of writing from multiple disciplines -- are available weekdays and evenings to work with Cornell graduate students, post-docs, and faculty to refine and develop strategies for drafting and revising writing projects and teaching materials.
Writers and teachers of writing can schedule 30- or 60-minute face-to-face meetings and online appointments (using a video and messaging platform). Tutors can also provide written feedback on drafts through our eTutoring system.

During a GWS session, tutors may help writers to:
  • get started with writing projects and teaching artifacts by brainstorming organizational schemes, evaluating materials, defining research questions.
  • explore ways to shape coherent arguments, make strong use of evidence, work with appropriate citation conventions.
  • consider questions about depth of analysis, organization, thesis statements, paragraph development, audience expectations, style, sentence structure.
  • identify patterns of error in grammar or usage in order to develop effective strategies for line editing.
