Working in the Writing & Communication Center
The Writing & Communication Center is currently hiring 2-3 peer consultants for the fall semester. Read below for application instructions.
As a peer tutor in the Writing & Communication Center, your main responsibility is to talk to fellow students about their words and ideas. You are not an editor or a proofreader; instead you are a guide, a coach, a sounding board and, at times, a teacher. Our mission is to help students become better, more independent writers, thinkers, and speakers, not just write better papers or earn an A on a presentation. As a peer tutor, you are instrumental in helping us achieve this goal!
In addition to working with students, Writing & Communication Center peer tutors are also expected to regularly attend staff meetings, create and design tutoring materials, visit classes to talk about Writing Center services, deliver writing workshops, and engage in action research as a member of the WCC community of practice.
Applications should be submitted to the WCC (via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or in person) along with an academic writing sample of at least four pages.
