What is the Difference between a Writing 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 on the first floor of Hill Hall. 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.
