Writing Tutor Internship

The Writing Center - UMass Amherst

Interested in becoming a tutor? If you enjoy talking about writing with others, enjoy responding to your peers' writing and are an open-minded reader or enjoy learning more about how writing works, then apply to be a tutor. The Writing Center is a community of over 40 undergraduate and graduate tutors who believe writing matters and who are always pushing ourselves to learn more about writing and writing education.  As a center for writing on campus, we seek to advance our understanding of social theories of writing, writing processes, linguistic and cultural differences that inform the practice of writing, and more.

To join us as a Writing Tutor Intern, undergraduates need to apply for and complete a two-semester course sequence on writing pedagogy: ENGLISH 329H, Tutoring Writing: Theory & Practice, in the fall and ENGLISH 298H, Practicum: Tutoring in the Writing Center, in the spring. These courses are a rigorous introduction to social theories of writing and research on writing processes, disciplinary writing norms, and diverse cultural literacies. Mid-way through the fall, tutor interns work two hours per week in the Writing Center, and the spring practicum involves four hours of tutoring per week. Writing tutors are responsible for working with writers in 45-minute tutorial sessions, engaging in ongoing learning about writing and writing education, and assisting with campus outreach. Those who complete both courses with a grade of B or higher are then invited to continue on as paid writing tutors.

Both courses (6 credits) count toward the Study and Practice of Writing (SPOW) Specialization with the Department of English. Enrollment in these courses is highly competitive. All majors are invited to apply to be tutors.

TO APPLY for a seat in English 329H, please send the following application materials to writingcenter@acad.umass.edu:

  • Letter of interest that discusses your interest in tutoring and your relevant experience;
  • Résumé;
  • Writing sample that showcases your facility with academic essays (at least 5 double-spaced pages); and
  • Name and email address of a college instructor familiar with your academic writing and peer review abilities.
