Considering the Role of a Tutor
As I understand it, tutoring in writing is similar to this, only more involved because we are not just teaching students a concept like indentured servitude, we are trying to give them the process of composition and help them discover their own useful process. Additionally, in working at a Writing Center sponsored by a School, ethics come in. In my belief, a school cannot provide a service where its students can have their work completed for them. Therefore, my main focus as a Peer Writing Advisor should be to ensure that the student is learning how to compose themselves, and more importantly, how to search for and use whatever tools they have to find solutions to problems and new experiences that they might come across in their own composition process.
