The Writing Center offers Flex Tutoring to provide faculty for building writing support into their course. Through Flex Tutoring, faculty collaborate with the Writing Center Director to create customizable writing consultant support, based on needs and available resources.
Flex arrangements can include:
writing tutors attending an in-class writing workshop day to assist students
assigning a required writing consultant visit via appointments or through email consultations for students
being a resource for students throughout a major project or assignment
... and more.
Contact the Writing Center Director to learn more about Flex Tutoring and what an arrangement can look like for you.
If you would like your class to utilize the Writing Center or simply want to share the opportunity, consider hosting a classroom presentation. Your students may be more likely to visit the Writing Center after learning how our team can support their writing efforts.
If you are curious how students will respond to a particular assignment, our tutors can help you fine tune and check the assignment draft for clarity. Our tutors, often students themselves, are experts in reading and responding to college assignments and are happy to give you feedback to ensure your assignment is interpreted correctly.
Some students may need an extra push to work with a writing tutor.
When recommending a student to the Writing Center, it is best to emphasize what the student does well in addition to any help they need.
Encourage your student to meet with Writing Center staff to discuss the type of support they are seeking so we are able to place them with an appropriate tutor. Instructors are always welcome to accompany a student to this meeting.
We ask that you do not require your students to visit the Writing Center unless established through a flex tutoring arrangement. Instead, consider offering extra credit as an incentive. Our staff is happy to work with you to make special arrangements or accommodations as needed.
