Become a Tutor

For Undergraduate Students:

To become a tutor, undergraduate students must complete the prerequisite course, Honors/English 2015HW: The Theory and Practice of Tutoring Writing. It is a Writing Intensive (WI) class which addresses both the theory and practice of tutoring and the foundations of good writing. Therefore, in addition to theoretical frames for what writing tutors do, it focuses on hands-on craft and practical experience working with other writers. This course fulfills a lower division Writing Intensive requirement and a General Education Humanities credit. Prerequisite: English 1000. A/F. This class meets Mondays and Wednesdays from 2:00-2:50pm.

This course also prepares students to work as writing tutors. Completing and doing well in the course qualifies them for a part-time job in the Writing Center in future semesters.

Students interested in the course should contact Dr. Aaron Harms at
