The Writing Center provides writing and speaking support for the Goucher community.
The Writing Center is providing two options for tutoring: Synchronous and asynchronous tutoring.
- Synchronous tutoring (live online tutoring) allows both you and the tutor to meet online for 30 or 60 minutes through audio/video or chat.
- Unlike live online tutoring, with asynchronous tutoring (e-tutoring) you can upload your draft to the system and receive written feedback from one of our tutors within two business days.
Office Hours: By appointment only, students should receive a response within 24 hours

What we do
The Writing Center at Goucher College serves students, faculty, and staff by offering one-on-one consultations on any issue related to writing. Each tutoring session is a collaboration between the tutee and the tutor, individually designed to help meet their particular needs. In addition to writing support, we offer speaking sessions for English language learners, and we can be a practice audience for oral and group presentations. We can help you with:
- brainstorming; outlining; organizing; revising; rewriting; editing; formatting; citing sources; and talking through an assignment
- designing and developing your multimodal projects
- preparing for presentations
- practicing speaking English
- putting together your College Writing Proficiency Portfolio
- developing and editing your graduate school and study abroad application materials
- developing and editing your resumes and cover letters
- any writing or speaking project you bring our way
