Patrick Henry College Writing Mentor Program

Is your student interested in creative writing, looking for help writing college application essays, or perhaps needs one-on-one assistance to improve his writing skills?  Some of Patrick Henry College’s brightest undergraduates and graduates will tutor your student in fiction or non-fiction writing through the PHC’s Writing Mentor Program.  PHC mentors work with you and your student at your own pace to help develop better writing skills with school assignments, give students writing exercises and tips, or edit parent assigned papers.


PHC graduate Whitney Archer commented about the program:  “Writing is a life skill: parents, lawyers, and construction workers all need it. My student, though her main interest is in photography, realized the importance of being able to express herself in proper written word. Her parents told me that they thank God for the opportunity for her to sharpen her skills as a writer.”


Since our mentors work with your student via email, phone, or mail, you can take advantage of this program from wherever you live.  PHC mentors charge $10 per hour for their services, but are sometimes willing to work pro bono in cases of financial hardship.  To learn more about the program or to receive an application, visit or email Rebekah Ries.
