In Winter Quarter, Paul and Noah are the peer tutors working with our program. They are an important part of the extended teaching team of the Language and Law program. In addition to helping with peer editing within the program, they are available for one-on-on peer tutoring at the Writing Center. Regardless of how good a writer you are, you can always be better. You should make it a habit of consulting with them about your writing. They work out of the Writing Center, which is located in CAB 108. Their telephone number is 867-6420.
We thank Kylin , Dan and Ian , for serving us so ably as Peer Tutors in the Fall Quarter.
You may want to read the Writing Center's Information on Program Tutors to understand how the peer tutoring program works, how the tutors help you, and what a typical tutoring session is like.
You can make an appointment to meet Kylin, Dan or Ian at the Writing Center, which is open Monday through Thursday 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Fridays 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Sundays from 12:00 noon to 6:00 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays, 6:00 to 9:00 p.m., the Writing Center moves to the A-Dorm for Prime Time Advising.
