My experience as a tutor in the Writing Center has changed my ideas about writing and learning. I have not only had the chance to help others, but I have had the opportunity to learn from them, too. Working at the Writing Center has allowed me to gain the confidence I need in writing, learning, teaching, and life.

Becoming A Writing Tutor

Spring Semester 2016
English 402: Internship in Tutoring Writing
TR 3:30-4:45 p.m.

The Writing Center is looking for excellent students with a strong background in writing and an interest in helping students. To become a writing tutor, students must first enroll in English 402: Internship in Tutoring Writing; students enroll in the Internship in Tutoring Writing by permission only. The minimum qualifications are completion of the first-year writing requirement (English 102) and a minimum GPA of 3.3. Graduate students are also encouraged to apply.

If admitted, students enroll in a three-credit course. Beginning the fourth week of the semester and continuing through the last week of class, students also work in the Writing Center for five hours a week as part of the course requirements. After completing English 402, students are eligible to apply for a part-time paid position as a writing tutor.

The application deadline for Spring Semester 2016 is Friday, December 11.  Early applications are welcome. To apply, please submit the following to Mary Ann Judge in Commons 323A:

  • A letter of interest
  • Two writing samples (graded preferably)
  • The names of two faculty members willing to provide a strong recommendation

The final step is an interview. To schedule an appointment, contact Mary Ann Judge, 885-4300.
