Note: The Writing and Learning Center is connected to Tutoring Services. You are welcome to use the form below to recommend a tutor for writing and/or course content. You are also welcome to use the form to recommend a receptionist.

Prospective writing tutors must meet the following criteria to be eligible to work with us: 1) strong written and oral communication skills, 2) minimum overall GPA of 3.0, 3) patience and empathy toward inexperienced writers, and 4) ability to maintain confidentiality. Along with an application, each applicant must submit two faculty recommendations, an academic writing sample, and an unofficial transcript.

Tutors are trained in general and writing-specific pedagogies, writing center theory, and best practices in writing tutoring.
