The Philip Boshoff Writing Center

Who We Are

Writing Center tutors are Skidmore undergraduates who have been trained to work with student writers at any stage of the writing process, in all disciplines and at all levels. We draw our tutoring staff from nearly every major on campus to ensure a broad range of expertise and discipline-specific knowledge. Our primary goal at the Writing Center is to give students the tools to become better writers, whether they are facing their first college paper or working on a senior capstone.
