Tutor Job Description

The CCNY Writing Center provides one-on-one peer tutoring for its student writing community.

Consultants at the CCNY Writing Center play the really valuable role of being thoughtful and careful readers of another student's work in a relaxed environment. Consultants do not grade papers or even judge a student's work; instead, they act as helpful, experienced readers of a writer's work. Consultants listen to a student's ideas, read drafts, and discuss assignments as they help the writer to revise his/her/their writing. Consultants also help students learn how to edit their work by reviewing grammar, mechanics, and style.
