THINK Together's program at Basset High School is looking to put together a writing lounge/center for our high school students and we need volunteer writers who can share their skills. Volunteer tutors will support students in writing and/or literature courses. Tutors will more largely assist students with all aspects of the writing process, from brainstorming and organization through drafting and polishing a paper, and work to help students develop their own voice while meeting the demands of an academic audience.

Below is a detailed description of the volunteer role:

  • Understand/discuss assignments, talk through ideas for a paper, discuss course readings, or plan for a paper
  • Guide students on the focus, purpose, reasoning and organization of the writing assignment
  • Support students’ understanding of the structure of topic sentences, thesis statements, paragraphs, and overall essay
  • Encourage critical thinking in students, aiding the students understanding of her/his writing
  • Acquire research strategies, integrate scholarly sources, and apply proper documentation (such as MLA or APA)
  • Improve editing and proofreading skills, expand vocabulary, and better understand technical conventions of academic writing

If your interested in being a part of the center as a volunteer tutor, please contact Joseph Cabral to find out how to get started!
