THESIS MENTOR PROGRAM

We will be accepting Thesis Mentor applications for the 2013-2014 academic year in November. You may apply for a standard mentor and specify in your application that you would like to focus on your thesis. If you are seeking additional assistance, we encourage you to schedule regular appointments at the Writing Workshop. Please email us with any questions at writingworks@wesleyan.edu.

Each spring the Writing Workshop offers a thesis mentoring program in which thesis writers are paired with trained mentors.  Each mentor is a junior or senior student who is a veteran writing tutor.  Thesis writers and their mentors meet weekly, sometimes daily.  Mentors can offer writing advice, assist with time management, and help plan or revise thesis chapters.

"I was so grateful to have a thesis mentor to help give me some perspective on my thesis, tell me when my ideas needed more clarity, and provide necessary proofreading.  The free editing alone is reason enough not to miss out on this opportunity.  You will never get a chance to have this service outside of Wesleyan- take advantage of it while you can!"

Thesis writers have greatly appreciated this program in the past.  An e-mail will be sent to all honors thesis candidates late in the fall semester telling you how to apply for a thesis mentor.
