Undergraduate Writing Tutors Program
The Writing Tutors Program provides quality writing assistance to advancing CAS students and supports faculty who teach writing in the disciplines. We work with departments and faculty from across the College, learning from faculty about writing in their fields and assisting them to integrate a more intensive focus on teaching writing into their courses.
Once we decide to partner with a course, we will meet with the faculty member to learn about his/her expectations for student writing and to discuss how best to create 2-3 occasions where peer tutors can provide written comments and meet individually with students about their drafts for writing assignments. The tutors are mentored by EWP lecturers who also takes care of logistical details and work to synthesize the knowledge generated from the tutoring process into a couple, short, in-class writing workshops.
