Request a tutor to visit your class

If you would like a group of tutors to visit your class, the Writing Commons Ambassadors are at your service! 

The Writing Commons Ambassadors are an organized group of Writing Commons’ employees who are available per request for class visits. Please look over and complete the form by answering the questions (copy & paste) in an email to writing@kent.edu, and we will get back to you as soon as possible. 

We offer two types of experiences for your students:  

Short Session (10-15 minutes): A brief Google Slides presentation followed by a tour of our website, how to navigate it, and how to schedule appointments, with time for questions afterwards.

  • The short visit is ideal if you are considering making a visit to the Writing Commons a requirement for your students (i.e. we can provide a tutorial on registering for appointments).

Long Session (45 minutes - 1 hour):  A brief Google Slides presentation about the Writing Commons followed by our assistance facilitating your peer review session or workshop

  • The long visit is ideal for a more interactive engagement with our tutors and services. We can help you with any aspect of the writing and revising process -- from developing a thesis, organization strategies, and overall revision techniques to citation and proofreading tips.  We will model appropriate feedback for your students and assist your students as they work through your class activity. We will need to meet with you to discuss the type of workshop you envision at least week before the presentation date. 

For the Long Session option, we will need to meet with you breifly to discuss the type of workshop you envision at least week before the presentation date.
