Do you need help with papers, blog posts, website design, exams, or readings?
Humanities Core Peer Tutors are upperclassmen from across the university who have demonstrated excellence in writing skills, maturity, and good judgment. Tutors take a training course and meet weekly with a professional coordinator for consultation. They are happy to help with specific assignments, or provide general course help. Location: Inside 185 HIB.
HumCore Reading Group:
The reading group, offered by the Center for Excellence in Writing, meets weekly for reading support sessions. Bring questions about difficult passages, concerns about using the text as evidence to support an argument, or join a discussion with other students about central themes in the text. Writing Specialist Amber Clontz will be available to offer reading strategies to help you push through confusion into the reward of understanding. As you understand what the text means to you, deeper levels of meaning in turn lead to a richer writing experience.
