Tutors for the Writing Center help students in Writing Program courses to develop critical reading and writing skills through regularly scheduled meetings. The job requires tutors who are good listeners and strong writers and who can commit to working with the same students at the same time every week. Tutoring is not only a good way to earn extra money, but is also a valuable form of community service and professional development to add to your résumé. It’s good work experience, particularly if you plan to teach composition or any writing-intensive course in the future. You will also likely find that the experience will help you to become a better writer yourself.
