Academic Writing Center

The Office of Student Services offers a free Academic Writing Center open to all Rollins students. We can help you organize your ideas, develop a writing plan, and identify grammatical mistakes with our one-on-one, in-person tutoring services.

Whether it’s a term paper, your thesis, or an academic journal article, we’re here to help you get your ideas and research across in a way that compels, informs, and inspires.

Tutoring sessions are 45 minutes long. Out of courtesy to our tutors, make or cancel your appointment at least 24 hours in advance. Please limit your sessions to two per month.
