Residential College Writing Tutors, also known as Bass Writing Tutors, work in the residential colleges—you’ve probably met your college’s tutor during the freshman dinner or fireside chats with the Master or Dean. Residential College Tutors are our most experienced tutors. Many of them are professional writers, most of them have taught writing courses at Yale or other colleges, and all of them have worked with Yale students for many years. Because of this experience, Tutors are familiar with many of the expectations in Yale courses and have helped students from every department with junior and senior essays, as well as with hundreds of papers from freshman and sophomore courses. Another benefit of the Residential College program is that you can develop a long-term relationship with the tutor in your college, learning how to work well together over several years. Click the link below to make an appointment. After you've made an appointment, please read the confirmation email carefully, as each Tutor offers slightly different instructions about preparing for appointments. Many of them will read a draft of your paper before the meeting, a service not available from the student Writing Partners at 35 Broadway.
For reference, we list below each tutor with his or her College and office location.
