Course Tutors are available for any writing intensive course, as well as by request.
Writing intensive courses include the following:
- First-Year Seminars (FYS)
- Second-level writing-intensive courses (CW)
- Writing and Rhetoric Program (WRPR)
Course Tutors are part of the course’s educational goals on writing and communication. Course tutors can work with students one-on-one to offer writing conferencing on writing process, revision, project planning, idea development, etc. The course tutor can also provide workshops in-class related to time management, revision, research integration, etc.
The embedded course tutor program is one that requires engagement between faculty and tutor(s)—faculty are expected to meet regularly with their course tutor(s) to set and maintain expectations around writing, for the course and its students. Additionally, past writing tutors have suggested that faculty intentionally include tutoring in the course expectations, such as through required visits, workshops, and other options.
Tutors may work up to 60 hours over the course of the semester. Tutors receive at least 12 hours of training, each term, plus summer on-boarding training. They are supervised and paid by CTLR.

A request form for course tutors will be posted online and emailed to faculty prior to the start of spring and fall classes.
