GSSW Writing Tutors

GSSW Graduate Assistant Writing Tutors are an added service available to members of the GSSW community.

What kind of assistance can I expect from the GSSW Writing Tutors?
Tutors will provide feedback on:

Conceptualization
Logical development of ideas
Organizational structure

Remember—tutors are NOT editors or proofreaders. They will give feedback about sentence structure, grammatical usage and APA style, but they will not make corrections. Each student is responsible for learning and using APA format appropriately. See below for additional resources.

When are the GSSW Writing Tutors available?
GSSW Writing Tutors are primarily available via email, though appointments can be arranged on an as needed basis. GSSW Writing tutors are available Tuesday through Sunday during the academic year.

Submission Details

Electronic submissions with a 48-hour-turnaround are limited to 8 pages/submission. To submit papers electronically send a message with an attachment to swtutors@bc.edu. Submissions will be processed Thursdays-Tuesdays at 7am and 7pm. Wait times for submissions received after a given process time will not begin until the subsequent processing time (e.g., if your paper arrives after 7 pm, it will not be processed--and your expected 48 hour waiting period will not begin--until 7:00 am the following day). Please plan accordingly.

You should expect to receive feedback within 48 hours for the first 8 pages of the paper. After reviewing the comments, if you would like to meet with a tutor to discuss them further, please reply to the tutor’s email with two options for when you would be available to meet.
