Embedded Tutor Support for FYS, CW, and WRPR Courses

The Writing and Academic Mentor for First-Year Seminars (FYSM) serves as a mentor and writing tutor for first-year students, assisting them with writing and oral presentation skills, and some time and project management (Jennifer Bates has a more in-depth support program for time management). The Mentor can work with students individually or in groups, either during class time or outside of class, for up to 60 hours over the course of the semester. The Mentors will be trained, supervised, and paid by CTLR.
