Skidmore College
The Philip Boshoff Writing Center


At the Philip Boshoff Writing Center at Skidmore, trained student tutors offer one-on-one consultations for student writers at every stage of the writing process, from assignment sheet to final revisions. We want to make better writers, not just better writing; rather than editing, we follow the writer's lead to meet their own goals for their project.

This fall, we will be open for tutoring at these hours:

Monday – Thursday, 10 a.m. – 10 p.m.
Friday, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Saturday, 12 noon – 4 p.m.
Sunday, 12 noon – 10 p.m.

All appointments will be online. Check our schedule for appointment times. 

If you have a draft ready to discuss, we ask that you email it your tutor at least 30 minutes prior to your session. As always, you do NOT need to have a draft to use our services.

Your tutor will contact you via email at the start of the hour, so please be online and ready to connect.
