    The University Writing Support Center (UWSC) invites interested students from all majors to become Writing Tutors. We need a diverse population of tutors to work with the diverse types of writing students need help with.


    The requirements to become a Writing Tutor are as follows:


    ·         Strong writing skills

    ·         Strong oral communication skills

    ·         Strong interpersonal communication skills (the ability to work well with others)


    The successful applicant also must complete ENGL 395: Theory and Methods of Tutoring. The class is usually offered during Spring Semester. If an applicant already possesses credentials in Tutoring, the UWSC may consider waiving the ENGL 395 requirement.


    Please contact Dr. Tim Decker, UWSC Director, at deckerti@mnstate.edu for more information.
