Writing Center

Welcome to the Delbarton Writing Center!

Our goal is to support students at all stages of the writing process — from understanding prompts and brainstorming argumentative ideas, to dissecting citation styles and editing final drafts — in order to help foster a community of confident academic writers and critical thinkers. We believe that all writers benefit from talking about their writing. By doing so, students not only learn to better understand their existing ideas; they also often discover new ideas.

Students who come to the Delbarton Writing Center will find an inclusive and welcoming environment where boys from all grade levels are invited to engage in dialogue related to their various writing projects across the disciplines. Student tutors — boys from the sophomore, junior and senior classes who are well-versed in the tenets of strong academic writing — work one-on-one with students on specific writing assignments in order to help each student in question strengthen his argument, improve his use of structure, better his understanding of grammar and mechanics, improve his sense of voice and ultimately leave his session feeling more knowledgeable and more self-assured.

Tutors are available in the Writing Center (S-202) at the following times:

  • Mornings: Monday - Friday, 7:30 - 8:00 a.m.
  • M-Block: Monday - Friday, 10:00 - 10:30 a.m.
  • Afternoons: Monday - Thursday, 2:45 - 3:45 p.m.

*Note: Appointments are not necessary. Walk-ins are always welcome.
