Becoming a Peer Writing Tutor or FYS Mentor

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Students are invited to become Peer Writing Tutors or FYS Mentors if they have been nominated for the Ward Prize (for writing the best First-Year paper) or if they have been specifically requested by a faculty member to work with a first-year seminar or a college writing course.

New Peer Writing Tutors and FYS Mentors are paid ($8.70 an hour), and the Writing Program and the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Research provide them with all the training they need. All new tutors attend an organizational meeting and five training sessions. All experienced tutors attend an organizational meeting and two additional training sessions. Information about FYS Mentor training will be published here this summer.

Peer Writing Tutors

provide drop-in tutoring in the Center for Teaching, Learning and Research (room 225) in the Davis Family Library and assist in college writing courses.

As a tutor, you may select the areas (depending on availability) in which you would most like to work: classroom, drop-in library tutoring.
