How can we help?

Residential College Writing Tutors work in each of the residential colleges. Many of them are professional writers and most have taught writing courses at Yale or other colleges and worked with Yale students for many years. Tutors are familiar with papers from freshman and sophomore courses and have helped students from every department with junior and senior essays. They can help you with other writing as well: fellowship or job applications, resumés, personal statements, etc..

How to make an appointment

On the schedule page click on any available white box. In the time field, change the length of the appointment, if needed. Most appointments are 30-45 minutes. Tell us about the course and paper. You will receive an email confirmation; be sure to read this message as it contains instructions specific to your tutor. 


  • You will make more progress by repeatedly seeing the same tutor.
  • If no appointment fits your schedule, check back – often. The schedule changes every day as students make and change appointments. New availability becomes visible a week in advance; best time to see new availability is midnight – 2AM.
  • Please only make appointments you know you can keep. If you must cancel, you may do so online up to 12 hours before your appointment. After that you must email or phone your tutor. Nobody likes a no show, so please don’t be one.
