We can give you feedback on elements of your essay such as organization, diction, voice, and grammar. Stop by the Learning Center during second lunch on A, B, and C days and a writing fellow will read your essay and give you great advice.
  • The Lower Merion High School Writing Center opened on Monday, September 25. The Writing Center hours are from 11:10-11:40, the second half of Lunch and Learn, on A, B, and C days. It is located in the Learning Center. The center's staff, writing fellows, are juniors and seniors who volunteered to be peer tutors. The goal of these student tutors is to help fellow Lower Merion students develop their writing skills, to "provide both an audience for their peers' ideas as well as an opportunity for others to seek genuine improvement in idea/thesis development, form, style and revision." You can receive help with any writing assignment: writing paragraphs, essays, creative pieces, or even college essays. The writing fellows are eager to work with you. Drop by the Writing Center on A, B, and C days, during second lunch.
