Without tutors, the Multidisciplinary 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 Multidisciplinary Writing Center ,
come by the Multidisciplinary Writing Center to pick up an application, or print one
out and bring it to us.
