Washoe County School District and the University of Nevada, Reno Writing Center are partnering to offer University Writing Tutors for 11th and 12th grade students. Our goal is to create a collaboration that supports writing as students transition from secondary to college environments.

Our target audience is 11th and 12th grade students; however, all students are welcome. We encourage students to choose a writing consultation when they need feedback on an assignment. AP students often need to understand how an audience would read their paper as much as a struggling writer needs to talk about comma usage. This service is for writing in all disciplines, including the sciences, history, art and English.
