Becoming a Peer Writing Tutor
Students are invited to become Peer Writing Tutors 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 are paid ($8.70 an hour), and the Writing Program provides them with all the training they need. All new tutors attend six sessions (an organizational meeting and five training sessions). All experienced tutors attend three sessions (an organizational meeting and two training sessions).
