The tutors that the Writing Center employs are undergraduates, with majors ranging from English to Education, that are among the best writers on campus. Each has been recommended by an instructor, and has gone through an interview and portfolio-submission process. In addition, all tutors have taken a 2-credit English class, EN 305—Tutoring Writing, that teaches them how to tutor writing.

Because this tutor-selection process is so extensive, we do not give out applications for becoming tutors in the Writing Center. If you have questions about this process, please contact the Writing Center Director, Z.Z. Lehmberg, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
