Peer Writing Tutor 
Applications for the 2023/2024 academic year will open February 1, 2023

The office of Academic Success is accepting Peer Writing Tutor applications for the 2023-2024 academic year.   

We are looking for dedicated undergraduate students to become Writing Tutors who will help their peers become better writers. We are seeking applicants of all majors/disciplines, including the Johnston Center. Bilingual/biliterate students are strongly encouraged to apply. Tutors work a set schedule of 6-10 hours each week and attend regular staff meetings. This is a paid position, and starts at $15.75 per hour.

To be considered:

  • you must be a full-time undergraduate student
  • you will need to have at least 32 credits completed (sophomore standing) by Fall 2023
  • you should have a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA or equivalent evaluations
  • you will need a faculty member to recommend you during the application process
  • you will be required to take a 4-unit training course (ENGL 308, Mentoring College Writers) during the Fall 2023 semester (3.0 grade required to continue in the position). 
  • you will need to be able to work 6 - 10 hours per week
  • you must commit to the full 2023-2024 academic year

Those interested are encouraged to schedule an appointment with a writing tutor at redlands.mywconline.com to see what a session is like. Most writing tutors do have sessions with each other, because all writers need readers. You can also talk with current tutors to learn more about expectations, what they like about the work, what they find challenging, etc. This will provide you a deeper understanding of the job for your application and interview. 

To apply: 

  1. Complete the Peer Writing Tutor application (supported browsers: Edge, Chrome, Firefox, Safari on Mac/iOS).
  2. Select and contact a faculty member who will be able to evaluate you as a writer and your ability to work with others. Inform your faculty reference that they will receive an email from etrieve@redlands.edu with a request to review your application. Your application will not be received by our office until the faculty reference completes the evaluation.
  3. Select a short (two- to three-page) written sample of work that you've completed within the past year. Attach a pdf of your writing sample to your application (Note: pdf document titles cannot include the number symbol "#").
  4. Submit your application to your faculty reference for review. 
  5. You will receive a confirmation email from etrieve@redlands.edu once your application has been received by our office. If you do not receive confirmation within 48 hours, reach out to your faculty reference. 

All applications are due by 5pm on Monday, February 20th. 

If you have any questions, please email meigan_karraker@redlands.edu.
