We will begin accepting applications for the fall 2019 semester in mid-January.
Undergraduate Student Tutors
In order to work as a paid undergraduate peer tutor in the Writing Center, students must first successfully complete ENG 345: Tutor Practicum, Writing Center Theory & Practice, a course that is offered each fall. The course fulfills an Area I requirement of the English major/minor as well as a Writing-Intensive requirement for the GEP.
Upon successful completion of the course, students are eligible to apply for paid positions in the Writing Center beginning the following semester.
The tutor practicum is open to all undergraduate students. About half of our tutors are English majors or minors, but we welcome all majors from the College of Arts and Sciences, the Haub School of Business, and the College of Professional and Liberal Studies. We aim for a diverse staff of peer tutors who are excellent writers, who enjoy working with other writers, and who bring to the Center an array of interests and expertise.
Applications for the course, available in the Writing Center and on our website beginning in late January or early February each year, are accepted in the spring prior to the registration period. Admission to the class is by instructor’s permission only.
