Student Job Descriptions - Writing Center
Writing Center Consultant
Number of Jobs: 8 Available: 8
Cedarville University Writing Center consultants help writers at all levels of proficiency from all academic disciplines develop effective writing skills. Consultants work one-on-one with writers, adapting each tutoring session to individual writers' needs. The CU Writing Center is neither a proofreading service nor a classroom; thus, tutors do not proofread, edit, or grade. Instead, they discuss with students various approaches to improving their writing in general and their assignments in particular. At times, consultants also work with graduate students, faculty, and staff with their writing projects.
For these reasons, each potential consultant is required to go through a rigorous application process, then successfully complete the required tutor training course, Writing Center Theory & Training, ENG 3550-01, offered every spring semester on Thursdays from 2-3:50 p.m. A detailed description of the job application process is posted on the Writing Center's website.
Please familiarize yourself with not only the job application process but also the Writing Center's mission and objectives before applying. In addition, please contact Prof. Julie Moore via e-mail in August if you're interested in applying for a job and enrollment in the required spring class. Sophomores and juniors are best suited for the writing center job application.
