We are hiring tutors!
Who we are
The center tutors are either current graduate students at Sophia, or Sophia alumni. They are trained in the theory and practices of peer tutoring. Additionally, as students or former students, they have special insights into assignments and professor expectations.
What we do
Tutors will ask questions about your assignment and draft, and will offer advice and answer questions you have about your assignment. The writing you bring can be any size or length, or it may just be an outline. We also provide advice for preparing an outline for a speech or presentation, and writing your resume in English.
To help you prepare for your tutorial, please download, print and complete the Preparation Form.
What we don't do
Tutors will not edit your paper for grammatical mistakes. They will, however, discuss the grammar uses you have made. Please do not come to the tutorial empty handed. You should at least bring the task information, and some notes if possible. We will not write the paper for you!
A Message From The Director
Welcome to the Writing Center at Sophia! Our mission is to help you become better writers. The focus of the center is on sustainable writing skills. We hope that you will continue to use this excellent resource to develop your writing skills throughout your time at Sophia.
The Center has been open for more than fifteen years, and since 2011 every semester we have offered a number of workshops that focus on specific areas of academic writing.
Students, do not hesitate. Whether it is a paper you have yet to write, or one you have already finished - you can talk to a tutor and receive constructive feedback about it. Visit the writing center office to make your next appointment.
