Writing Tutors

A tutor is a graduate student affiliated with the Writing Center who supports members of the university in improving their writing. It is not the tutors’ responsibility to correct people’s writing; they are trained to help writers organize their thoughts, draw out their ideas, and nurture their writing ability.

A tutor is required to maintain confidentiality of those they support and will not disclose any information gained during the Tutorials.

The tutor's fields of research are diverse, including educational studies, psychology, sociology, law, religious studies, ecology, and musicology.
