Tutoring writing for doctoral candidates


Non-directive writing support is an approach originated in the US system of higher education which has been proven useful for learning and text production by the most recent cognitive writing research. In a tutoring session of maximum 45 minutes, writer and tutor together reflect on the status of the writing process and the quality of the text produced so far. They will also discuss ways of optimizing the individual writing process. Finally, the next steps in the work process will be agreed upon.


Dr. Gerd Bräuer is writing tutor at the Freiburg Writing Center (University of Education Freiburg) and long-time associate professor at Emory University in Atlanta (USA). Please refer to for more information about the writing coach.
