Be a Tutor

We’re always looking for writing tutors. Interested?  Tutoring may be right for you if you:

  • Enjoy writing
  • Like meeting and talking to new people
  • Love to read
  • Enjoy helping others
  • Want a campus job with flexible hours
  • Need some resume building experience

No prior tutoring experience required, and you do not have to be an English major.
Training and practice are provided through a 1 credit course, ENGL 318 Writing Tutor Training.
You must have a 3.0 GPA and have completed ENGL 110 and 120 with a B or higher. 

Here’s what some of our former tutors have said about tutoring:

"I love getting the chance to hang out with so many different students. Also, I like reading and writing."

— Matt

"I tutor for the experience of working together with aspiring writers through conversation. I'm always learning something new."

— Nathan

"It's fun! I get to see and hear so many different ideas on topics. It keeps me learning."

— Beth
