Student Learning Commons: Writing and Learning Peers

Writing and Learning Peers are student volunteers who help their fellow students in learning strategies -- such as study skills, note-taking, time management, and exam preparation -- and a variety of academic writing strategies. They are selected based on their transcripts, writing samples, faculty recommendations, and an interview process, and receive in-depth ongoing training on topics such as interpersonal communications, effective and ethical tutoring techniques, writing-in-the-disciplines, and language structure.

The SLC Writing and Learning Peer Program has earned an internationally recognized tutoring credential (Level 2 of the College Reading and Learning Association's International Tutor Program Certification).
