Become a Peer Tutor
Writers' Studio Peer Tutoring and EN301
Undergraduate and graduate students from all majors who staff the Writers' Studio and deliver one-to-one writing conferences and participate in classroom writing workshops.
Students qualify to become peer tutors in the Writers' Studio after they have successfully completed EN301W Advanced Composition: Theory and Practice of Writing. This course is open to second-semester sophomores and above and qualifies as a writing intensive course.
Admission to the class is by permission only. Interested students are asked to provide an instructor recommendation, a writing sample, completed application form, and interview for a slot in the class. Because our program serves writers across the curriculum, majors from all colleges are encouraged to apply.
Peer tutors are asked to commit approximately 6-8 hours per week. Undergraduates are currently paid $8.00/hr. There are often opportunities for additional hours through various Studio workshops and programs.
Note: Anticipated study abroad is not an impediment to becoming a tutor.
Yes. We reserve a few places for students in the College of Education who wish to acquire additional preparation in the teaching of writing
