Without tutors, the Writing Center is unable to function; therefore, we hold the position
of a tutor in the highest regard. There are many benefits to becoming a tutor. Tutoring
provides a service to the WBU students, a service that raises morale and the overall
academic achievement of WBU. Tutors also benefit themselves, improving communication
skills, building resume credentials, increasing familiarity with academic writing
conventions, and it’s a paid position.
With all of this in mind, there are some prerequisites to becoming a tutor. A student
must have at least 30 college credit hours, a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.7, paper
writing experience in his or her field of study, a faculty recommendation, patience,
and a caring attitude toward others in order to be considered for the position. If
you are interested in becoming a tutor for the Writing Center, come by the Writing
Center to pick up an application, or print one out and bring it to us.
