Spring 2014 Organization Meeting Thursday, February 13, at 4:30 PM

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Our first Peer Writing Tutor and Writing and Academic Mentor training session takes place Thursday, February 13, at 4:30 PM in CTLR (Davis Family Library 225). All new and trained PWTs and FYSMs must attend this Organizational Meeting.   If you are new or were abroad last semester, we will take your picture for our wall, and you will receive your training folder.  If this is your first paid job at Middlebury College, make sure you have all the documents you need for employment.

  • You can find the whole spring training schedule below and at go/pwt.
  • New Tutors will attend all six sessions.
  • Trained PWTs and FYSMs will attend three sessions (Org, Session 2 or 3, and Session 4,5, or 6).

We have only a handful of First-year Seminars in the spring, so we have many Mentors without assignments. Mentors who would like to train and  work as Peer Writing Tutors in the spring, will attend The Org Meeting, Session 2, and Session 4. . Because we added several Commons drop-in sessions last semester, we now have 19 drop-in positions and 19 official alternate drop-in positions.  You can apply for these drop-in positions at the Organization Meeting Thursday, February 13.

I look forward to seeing you next month! In the meantime, feel free to e-mail me with questions.

If for any reason you will not be training or working in our program spring semester, please email me immediately, and I will remove you from our email list. If you are not graduating in May, you can work for us another semester.

We expect you to attend regularly scheduled afternoon training sessions. Makeup sessions are for mentors and tutors who have legitimate conflicts (sports practice, orchestra, job interview, or a lecture required for a class).  In advance of the regular session, please e-mail for permission to attend a makeup session.  Make-ups will be given only with permission and in advance for a valid reason. E-mail Izzy Nuttall for permission. Izzy will consult with Mary Ellen Bertolini, and then let you know if you have permission to attend a makeup session with Izzy.
