Be a Tutor
Do you enjoy teaching and learning from others? Are you someone who has always been good at writing? Have you always considered writing difficult and tedious? If you answered yes to any of these questions, consider enrolling in “English 2: Peer Tutoring and Writing” and becoming a Madison College Peer Tutor!
ABOUT THE COURSE
This course meets the same requirements and transferability as any English 2 class. However, it includes the added bonus of improving your writing and communication skills by helping others improve theirs. You will experience both traditional classroom learning as well as hands-on learning in the Writing Center.
After successfully completing the Peer Tutoring course, you will be eligible to join our exceptional Writing Center staff as a paid peer tutor. It’s an excellent way to continue honing your communication skills, meet other students and earn extra cash. It is also a great experience to include on a resume!
WHAT PAST PEER TUTORS HAVE SAID

- “’Peer Tutoring and Writing’ changed the way I write. In helping others organize their ideas, I learned better organization.”
- “Those moments when I’d be working with someone and together we made a breakthrough – that’s just awesome.”
