Ross Peer Writing Tutors are outstanding student writers, typically nominated for their position by faculty members. These tutors are trained by the Writing Program to work with their peers on papers assigned across the disciplines. Training takes place over a series of six required sessions at the CTLR. Peer Writing Tutors are trained to provide "authorized aid" on papers.
Ross Writing Tutors will offer drop-in tutoring hours for their peers at Ross Commons several nights a week. Peer Writing Tutors can work with students at any phase of the writing process. They are also trained to help with oral presentations.
While the Writing Program will pay for the tutors' training hours, Ross Commons will pay for the hours that tutors put into working their shifts at Ross.
Peer Writing Tutors are expected to report to the Writing Program about their tutoring experiences at Ross Commons by filling out their log sheets and submitting them at the CTLR.
