Observations in the Writing Center
Another thing that stood out to me was that no matter how many grammatical errors there were in the paper, the tutor rarely stepped in and edited them. The tutor would discuss grammar and tell the writer that they had some grammatical errors, but the job of revising and editing would be left to the writer.
Finally, when discussing things to possibly change the tutor always asks the writer a question to prompt further thought. The tutor also adds suggestions on what a reader might want to hear more about. All these procedures help the writer learn how to advance in their writing skills and also helps tutors develop the language they need to work with writers.
