Become a Tutor for the Writing Workshop
The Writing Workshop is a student-staffed program designed to provide assistance with any stage of the writing process, from initial brainstorming to final drafts. Staffed by sophomores, juniors, and seniors, selected and trained to work with individuals in an informal, non-judgmental context. Prospective tutors are nominated by faculty usually as first-year students, occasionally as sophomores. Candidates are interviewed, selected, and then trained by head of the Writing Workshop, Dean Peter Grudin. Good candidates don’t necessarily have to be stellar writers themselves, but they do need excellent analytical skills and strong inter-personal skills. If you think you would like to be a Writing Tutor, don’t hesitate to ask a professor to consider nominating you.
