Our Tutors

Meet Our Tutors

The undergraduate and graduate students who tutor in the Center are chosen for their excellent writing ability as well as their people skills. Each semester they participate in a 4-credit course in the theory and practice of Writing Center tutoring, in which they read and discuss scholarly works about composition pedagogy and best practices in peer tutoring. Our tutors undergo extensive orientation and training before the Writing Center opens, improve their skills through practice and reflection, and benefit from weekly faculty feedback and ongoing supervision.
