What is the difference between a peer tutor and a Writing Fellow?

Writing tutors are generalists who work with students from a variety of majors. Writing tutors hold regular hours and work from the Writing Center. Writing Fellows, on the other hand, are specialists in a particular kind of writing and are connected to a specific faculty member and course. Whereas writing tutors work with multiple individuals on many different assignments, Writing Fellows typically work with students from a single class on a small number of assignments. Both are highly trained in tutoring pedagogy, but each specializes in a different type of tutoring.
