The Writing Center's Peer Tutors not only tutor their peers but, in recent years, have also participated in panel discussions at the New England Writing Center's Annual Meeting .

Selected students — there are currently eight — are required to take a year long course in writing and teaching which will enable them to start tutoring after the first term.

"As a tutor, I have used my skills to help students with scientific writing assignments," said Tammy McGrath '96. "Encouraging and helping students write in a scientific manner begins with conveying the message that this particular writing style — clear, concise, and logical — is a tool that they can utilize over and over again."

The Writing Center is located on the third floor of the Arts and Sciences building.
