Are you confident in your writing ability?
Do you enjoy working with other people?
Since its founding in 1978, the Writing Center has been staffed by some of the best students F&M has to offer-recipients of departmental awards, members of various honor societies, and even five Williamson Medalists. Writing Center tutors work with writers from across all academic disciplines in one-on-one sessions, helping F&M students learn how to become more effective writers. In this role, tutors provide an invaluable service to the College's educational mission.
Tutors report enjoying a job in which they act, and are treated, as professionals. Using their academic and interpersonal skills, they derive satisfaction from helping their peers. But, once at the Center, they appreciate the added bonus of getting to know and work with the other tutors. As one recent Writing Center alumnus explained, "When I got this job, I thought it would be a good way to earn money and help my résumé. What I discovered was that I became a member of a group of smart, funny, and unique individuals."
The Writing Center is looking to hire at least ten tutors for the 2014-2015 year.
There will be an informational meeting for anyone interested in applying for a Writing Tutor position on Tuesday, February 4th at 6pm in the Writing Center on the 2nd floor of Diagnothian Hall.
