- Our undergraduates complete an application and then an interview with Writing Center staff. We accept applications all year, but interviews are conducted primarily during the Spring semester. Students accepted to the program enroll in English 111W, Introduction to Peer Tutoring in Writing. This is a three-credit course taught by Dr. Schreiber, the director of the Writing Center. The tutoring course is offered in the Fall semester of each academic year and will count as an elective toward your graduation credits. Upon completion of English 111W, students may begin to tutorat a pay rate of $10.00/hr. If you are interested in employment as a tutor, please fill out an application. Applications can be handed in at the front desk of the Writing Center at any time. We encourage all those who are interested to apply!
