Olin Library

The Tutoring & Writing Center

Our mission is to provide all students in the Rollins community with access to responsive peer educators and resources that support their development as effective, independent learners.

What do we do?

The TWC is staffed by content tutors and writing consultants who are undergraduate and graduate students at Rollins. These peer tutors are trained to provide responsive, individualized instruction on a wide range of academic subjects, projects, and assignments.

Our content tutors: help you learn concepts and skills for your academic courses.

Our writing consultants: help you draft, revise, and generate ideas for any type of writing you may be working on (and at any stage in your writing process).

We are not an editing service or a homework check service; rather, we work with you to help you achieve your academic and intellectual goals. Our services are designed for all students in the Rollins community. Whether you feel you are struggling in a particular academic subject, or you simply want to understand your own learning and writing processes better, our peer tutors are here to offer you meaningful, productive feedback. And all of our services are completely free to use!

Where are we located?

The TWC is on the main (2nd) floor of Olin Library. When you come in through the main entrance to the building, turn left past the circulation desk and walk all the way to the end of the hallway. Turn right to head into the Lakeview Lounge area to find your tutor (they will have their name on a whiteboard, and you can find your tutor's name in your appointment confirmation email).

What are our hours?

Peer tutors are available within these time ranges by appointment:

Monday - Thursday 8 a.m. - 10 p.m.
Friday 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Sunday 11 a.m. - 10 p.m.
