Opportunities in the Writing Center

Peer Writing Tutor

Peer Writing Tutors will primarily work with students individually or in small groups to improve their writing skills. The Tutor will be expected to facilitate daily operations of the Writing Center by creating a welcoming and professional environment and maintaining precise records. Peer Writing Tutors are not copyeditors or proofreaders; instead, they help writers improve their skills in analyzing and revising academic writing.

 

Because the Shaw University Writing Center focuses on helping students in a wide variety of courses, we encourage students from any major to apply.
