The Writing Center is staffed by undergraduate peer tutors. Tutors assist students in all concentrations with course writing assignments and fellowship/grant/graduate school applications. Tutors are selected based on a demonstrated record of academic excellence across multiple fields, a writing sample, a letter of interest, and a rigorous interview. 

If you are interested in applying to be a writing tutor for the 2020-2021 academic year, please email us the following materials by May 8 as a merged PDF. If you have questions, please contact us at writingcenter@fas.harvard.edu

  • A letter of interest
  • A resume
  • A transcript (unofficial is fine)
  • A writing sample (a paper you wrote for a Harvard course)
