A Note on COVID-19: We prioritize the safety of our SAINTS. This semester, sessions in the Writing Center (L09) are socially distanced. In addition, we offer a variety of online appointment options. Please be prepared to wear your mask if you visit the center. Your tutors will be wearing theirs!
Collaboration is at the heart of Writing Center work; as such, we foster socially-conscious partnerships in pursuit of the common good. Our approach to tutoring is guided by the belief that every writer deserves feedback from a knowledgeable and empathetic reader. Siena College tutors are trained in the Franciscan tradition of servant leadership, and they practice a client-centered approach that recognizes and affirms the dignity and diverse needs of each writer. Students, faculty, and staff who visit the center can expect to engage in critical and insightful conversations about assignments and projects in any subject, at any stage of development. At Siena, you are never alone in the writing process--regular consultations with our tutors will empower you to become a more confident and self-sufficient writer.
Our peer tutors help with reading and writing assignments, oral presentations, slideshows, and group projects in any area of study.
Our professional tutor assists non-traditional students, international students, and English Language Learners.
The Writing Center Ambassador Program develops writing support services in local secondary schools.
Our director collaborates with faculty on writing instruction and assignment development.
