Writing Center tutors teach writing to their peers. If you enjoy writing and working with people, please apply to join the Writing Center team. The Writing Center is hiring three to five new tutors to being working in Fall 2015.
The primary way tutors teach writing is through facilitating fifty-minute writing consultations, during which tutors assist their peers in all stages of the writing process. Our goals for every writing consultation are to identify a writing skill that needs improvement, teach and practice that skill, and then identify next steps for the writer’s continued improvement – all the while encouraging our writers to be confident in exercising the writing skills they already have.
In addition to working one-on-one with writers, all tutors participate
in a weekly, 90-minute staff meeting and complete one hour of administrative
work in the Writing Center per pay period (every two weeks). Compensation
is currently $8.00 per hour, and tutors receive ongoing professional
development and training. Writing Center tutors are also involved in
planning and facilitating writing-related, on-campus events.
