Become a faculty tutor!
Each semester, the WRL Center hires adjunct instructors as faculty tutors. If you are interested in tutoring, please email the WRL Center Director to receive additional information. Faculty tutors provide tutoring from week 3 through week 15.
Drop-in tutoring is available after second week of the start of classes. In addition, Instructional Associates are available for 45-minute appointments for students interested in longer sessions. These appointments are offered at specified times and are staggered among the different staff tutors in order to accommodate a variety of schedules. Students may sign up for two appointments per week; however students may only have one tutoring session per day, whether on an appointment or drop-in basis (for a total of three sessions per week). However, the length of a tutoring session may be limited based on tutoring load and/or staffing.
Requirements for Students Receiving Tutoring
Students are strongly encouraged to have written instruction, either in the form of a handout or specific notes, from their instructors, when they come for tutoring on written assignments. Please communicate this policy clearly to students if suggesting that they see a tutor. We are better able to assist students if we know what the professor was looking for when the assignment was first given.
Mandatory Tutoring Policy
The WRL Center supports the autonomy and privacy of students seeking tutorial services and has found that these conditions are more effective than mandatory tutoring requirements. We encourage you to recommend tutoring and workshops to your students. The Center documents all tutoring sessions and will forward a copy of non-confidential sessions to faculty. However, you are welcome to mandate workshops and—as always—you may continue to require lab requirements for instructional software.
Tutoring for Portfolio Assessment
During the portfolio preparation period of each semester, we offer students in the EN and EL classes (EN001, EN002, EN 101, EN101A, and EL104) guided tutoring utilizing our Portfolio Tutoring Checklist to help students revise their essays.
Workshops are offered on set topics over the course of the semester. Faculty may also request specific workshop topics be addressed.. To request a workshop, please email the WRL Center at firstname.lastname@example.org at least two weeks in advance of the reqested date. Click here to view our latest schedule.

We look forward to working with all of your students this semester and wish everyone success!
