Tutor Support Systems, Just a few questions!

Last night in our preparatory class for our positions within the Writing Center I thought of asking the rest of you tutors, and directors out there about the steps (if any) you take to prepare and support your tutors while in the center as tutors, official or unofficial.

So, with a quick response, would you please outline the support you recieve(d) with your tutoring?
Such as preparatory classes, workshops, sit-ins, guidance from "veteran" consultants and director, GA or other staff, or any other kind of reflection activities?

Thank you!
Have a great halloween!


  1. At the College of Business, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, we developed a website for in-house use that has served as support for business writing tutors and students with ESL needs enrolled in the business school. Over the years, we have added to the website more rules, examples, writing strategies, and real samples from student business writing errors. This website has provided a clear framework for tutors to identify errors and for students to understand and develop effective editing strategies. This month we are launching our book, The Practiced Business Writer , which we developed based on the framework of our acclaimed in-house website. For those interested in real samples of students' business writing errors and recommendations on how to help them self-correct their errors, please go to http://www.practicedbusinesswriter.com/ to buy the book or ask for a review copy.
