COLCHESTER, Vt. — Sarah Ames is one of 29 students nominated by faculty members and selected as writing coaches at Saint Michael's College for the fall 2013 semester.
Ames is the daughter of Kathleen Foley of Moultonborough and Roy Ames of Tamworth. She is a senior psychology major, who graduated from Moultonborough Academy before coming to Saint Michael's.
The coaches are an elite group who do professional work-one-on-one with their peers at the college, diagnosing writing problems and designing strategies to help. The coaches work with clients who seek guidance regarding writing assignments for their courses. They follow the premise, "Teach the writer, not the writing," and thereby don't just correct a given paper, but work with writers, so that they will have skills to improve their writing on their own in future assignments.
The coaches are recommended by a professor and have to pass an entry test to get into a Writing Center Internship course which they take prior to being named coaches. They are also given special instructions for working with students with learning differences and working with non-native speakers of English. International students comprise a substantial portion of the visitors to the writing center. Coaches are selected because of their language skills, patience, flexibility, good humor, and a good knowledge of written English.
