How the Center Helps Instructors
There are a variety of ways you can utilize the Center:
Tutors are available:
- Mondays through Thursdays 10am – 7pm
- Fridays 10am – 3pm (starting March 2)
- Saturdays 11am - 4pm (starting March 3)
You can require your students to log a certain number of visits to the Center during the term. If you choose this option, please call or email the Center so that the necessary arrangements for your class can be made.
Visit Verification Form:
You can require your students to attach a Visit Verification Form to all rough and final drafts. These forms bear the Center’s stamp and are dated. Please discourage students from visiting the Center on the day papers are due. If papers are reviewed on the date they are due, students have not done the reflection needed for a successful rewrite.
You can use a referral form to send students who are having specific mechanical/grammatical problems. Download referral form here.
Assign Writing Consultants to Classes:
The Center may be able to provide assigned tutors to a limited number of classes. If you are interested in this option, please call during the first week in the semester. You may use this consultant in class or as a Center contact person for the class. Although consultants are trained, they are still students. Effective tutoring occurs solely under effective classroom guidance. If for any reason you have a complaint about a consultant (or a compliment), do not hesitate to contact me. The Center is here to serve you and your students.
TRACKING STUDENT PROGRESS:
Teacher-Tutor Communication Forms:
Around the seventh week of the semester, you may receive correspondence from tutors regarding your students who have been visiting the Center. Please use this form to give us feedback.
End of Semester Visit Summary:
In the twelfth week of the semester a visit summary report will be sent out to all Instructors teaching Introductory level courses. If you are teaching an upper level course and would like a visit summary report for your class, please contact the Center.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or suggestions.
