Request A Tutor Visit

No time for a class tour?

No problem! The Writing Commons will come to you!

We offer two types of experiences for your students:  

Short Session (10 minutes - 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.

Long Session (20 minutes - 40 minutes):  A brief Google Slides presentation about the Writing Commons followed by a more detailed view of what our sessions entail using one of the following activities:

  • Mock Session
    • Two tutors role play a typical Writing Commons session from start to finish
  • Fishbowl Exercise
    • A tutor conducts a mock session with one of your students as a second tutor explains what's happening
  • Resource Activity
    • Choose a resource from our website, and the tutors will help you facilitate an activity based on that resource

 

For the Long Session option, we will need at least week before the visit to plan with you.

 

To Request an Ambassador Visit, fill out this form.

 

IMPORTANT: As a reminder, while our Ambassadors are present in your class, you are still the instructor of record. Please remain in your classroom while we are facilitating our presentations.

After you submit your request, a member of our team contact by email to consult with you about your class visit.
