Meet the Writing Centre Tutors

Most of our writing tutors are students. The responsibility of the tutor is to offer feedback and advice on writing, with the goal of developing students' writing skills. The responsibility of the writing tutor is not to fix or simply editthe paper or be an expert on the content. Tutors attend up to 20 hours of training on the following topics: writing, grammar, collaboration, interpersonal skills, intercultural competencies, and tutoring and writing centre theories, practices, and strategies.The interaction between the writing tutor and the writer is one of cooperation, respect, and focused learning.
