Message to Faculty
an academic support resource of Berry College, the Writing Center
practices high standards of academic integrity, professional
and confidentiality. In addition to the Center’s philosophy of working
from higher order conceptual concerns to later order (sentence level)
concerns, peer writing tutors take a three-hour academic course and
learn how to employ minimalist tutoring tactics
that engage students in active learning. Tutors are also coached not to
appropriate student ideas or to write on student texts; rather than
merely helping to create a better paper, tutors help students obtain a
critical perspective on their writing and the habits
of mind and hand needed to revise it.
note: summary reports of each tutoring session are sent to the
respective professor provided the tutor receives the student’s consent.
