Tutoring Practices:

  • Tutors assist students in clarifying, organizing, and formatting writing assignments.

However, tutors do not compose, type, or mark students’ assignments.

  • Tutors review students’ writing to help identify sentence error patterns and provide students with information on how to correct the errors themselves.

However, tutors do not edit or “fix” students’ papers.

  • Tutors encourage students to return for a follow up review session.

However, students are allowed two 30 minute essay review sessions per day.

  • Tutors can review students’ writing and discuss strengths and areas for improvement.

However, tutors do not assess assignments for students by predicting grades.
