Book a Session

Trained peer tutors are ready to help in online sessions. Please fill out and submit a Online Tutor Request Form.  Someone will be in touch once we receive your submission.

Our trained peer tutors help you write your paper the way you want to. We can’t edit for you, but we help you make good choices in your own writing.

  • Peer tutors are trained to help you gain confidence about your writing assignment.
  • Talk with a tutor and see your writing in a new light, even if you're just getting started.
  • Send us your assignment, your draft, your concerns -- whatever you've got.
  • No one writes perfectly on the first try! But you're in luck: we can help you figure it out.

Plan ahead and book your appointment. We offer email feedback and online tutorials through Teams.

The Writers' Block services are always completely free for SUNY Potsdam students.
