SLC | Become a Writing Tutor
The Student Learning Center Writing Program offers the opportunity for students to make a valuable contribution to the UCB student community while developing practical teaching skills and exploring current issues and theoretical frameworks in education.
New SLC Writing tutors will tutor fellow Cal students in writing and/or literature courses. Tutors assist students with all aspects of the writing process, from brainstorming and organization through drafting and polishing a paper, and work to help students develop their own voice while meeting the demands of an academic audience. The format and number of hours of direct work with students varies according to the background of the tutor, the number of units taken (3 hrs/wk/unit) or requirements of the paid position, and is established by agreement with the Program Coordinator at the beginning of the semester.
