Writing tutors are an amazing resource for anyone looking to develop certain aspects of their writing. Many students see tutoring services as only being suitable for novice writers, but even experienced, confident writers use these services to improve their written work. Whether it is their basic grammar or the logical development of their writing that students wish to work on, writing tutors can help.
In this podcast, we hear from the Program Leader of UBC’s Writing Centre, as well as one of the tutors, who works with students on a day-to-day basis. They discuss how students can book and prepare for sessions, what they can expect to get from them, and why everyone should consider working with a writing tutor.
We have created a complementary resource that may prove useful to instructors wishing to encourage students to seek tutoring help. This resource is available to download once you have contacted a site administrator here. Once you have provided your details (including a verifiable academic institution email address) you will receive a password that will enable you to download it.
