10.9.5. Peer Tutoring and Writing Center

Tutoring is available in over thirty courses, with an emphasis on freshman and sophomore courses. All tutors must have at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA and received a grade of “B” or higher in the course in which they wish to tutor. General writing tutors are required to maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 and display a strong knowledge of writing style and form, as evidenced by a professor’s recommendation. Tutors are trained to be responsive to a student’s particular needs, to help students identify their writing strengths and weaknesses, and to help the student build confidence in their academic capabilities.
