Becoming a Writing Tutor

How to Become a Writing Tutor

Generally, students who want to become tutors have attained junior level status. Unless they have received formal writing tutor training elsewhere, incoming tutors are required to enroll in and attend English 4600, Tutorial Projects. This course will provide initial and on-going tutor training. Because tutoring writing is complex, training in composition theory, tutor observation, and guided practice are essential.

A goal of the Writing Center is to become more interdisciplinary; therefore, students in all majors are encouraged to take English 4600 and become Writing Center tutors.
