The Writing Center is open for online synchronous tutoring! Please go ahead and choose a time that works for you: just click on an appointment that works for your schedule and follow the prompts. We hope everyone is well and safe and look forward to seeing you, online, in the Writing Center.

Revised Announcement in light of the move to online instruction March 2020: The Writing Center is now accepting tutoring applications for the Fall 2020 semester. Earn practicum credits while gaining experience in one-on-one writing instruction. If you're considering graduate school or think experience in tutoring and academic coursework in Writing Center pedagogy might be beneficial to you, we encourage you to apply. The Writing Center offers free writing support to any Binghamton University student. Tutors enroll in WRIT 491: Practicum in College Writing Tutoring, and the application process is competitive. Tutors must have a 3.0 GPA, junior standing by credit hours, a strong academic writing background, and good references, and successfully complete an interview process. The practicum also entails meeting once a week for 90 minutes and covering a set number of 45-minute shifts tutoring in the Writing Center or, possibly, online. Returning tutors (those who've completed WRIT 491 and are tutoring for a second or subsequent semester) are paid.

Please don't apply through Handshake. To download the tutor application, visit: Questions? Contact Writing Center Director Wendy Stewart (
