COLLEGIAL TALK

DURING THE TUTORIAL

    • If you are comfortable, it makes it easier for the writer to be comfortable taking advice from you
    • Don’t be afraid to take a break from working on a writing assignment
    • Balance your appearance of a peer and authority on academic writing
    • Pay close attention to visual cues from the writer such as frustration or anger expressed and use these to comfort the writer and work towards getting back on track

CULMINATING THE TUTORIAL

    • Review the main points discussed and be open to rephrasing and clarifying anything the writer has questions about
    • Ask the writer if there is anything further that they feel needs to be discussed. After all, this is their time to grow from the mistakes they identify
    • Leave them with words of encouragement or assurance as many will be unconfident about their writing abilities
    • If you plan on working with the writer again, jot some notes down so that you may recall the session the next time you meet with them
