Writing Center Tutor Application Form
The Writing Center is staffed by graduate students and other professionals with expertise in academic writing and experience in tutoring or teaching. Writing Center tutors serve a wide range of student-athletes on an individual basis to provide assistance in all stages of the writing process and for any assignment, from FYC essays to graduate school statements of purpose. Tutors have rosters of students with whom they regularly meet and may also conduct walk-in sessions.
- In addition to upholding UGA’s Culture of Honesty, Writing Center tutors maintain strict compliance with UGA Athletic Association, NCAA and SEC regulations.
- A bachelor’s degree is required; we are not a peer-tutoring facility.
- Tutors are expected to be fluent in English writing, reading, and speaking and to have excellent skills in editing for English grammar, punctuation, and mechanics, including citation and documentation in APA, Chicago, and MLA styles.
- Consistent attention to detail is essential.
- Excellent organization, time-management, and communication skills are required.
