Apply to Be a Writing Tutor

From Emery Frick, Ford Fellow:

If you love to read, write, and — most importantly — help others with their writing, apply to be a writing tutor this spring!

The Writing Workshop has begun soliciting applications for the Spring 2018 writing tutor positions. Apply now—the quick and easy pre-application form is available here (link: http://wesleyan.edu/writing/writingworkshop/resourcesforstudents/becometutor.html) and is due by Friday, November 3rd at 5 PM.

Tutors will be compensated for one semester of work with a $500 stipend and 1/2 course credit in the Writing Certificate. All tutors undergo a two-day intensive training session at the beginning of the spring semester, followed by check-in meetings on Tuesdays or Thursdays from 12-1 PM.

There are two steps in the application process:

1. The pre-application form. This is a short form indicating your interest in applying for a position.

2. The full application is due on Friday, March 10 at 5 pm. Applications are to be delivered to Ford Fellow Emery Frick’s office (Shapiro 307).
