Tutor Activities

Tutors wait for a plane in Atlanta.The peer tutors at the Writing Center enjoy what they do: talking about writing with other students and helping these writers grow. But the tutors' work isn't limited to the tutorial in the Center. St. Mary's tutors meet with each other regularly to discuss tutoring, to continue their training, and every so often, just to have fun. The camaraderie that develops between tutors is one of the most rewarding aspects of being involved with the Writing Center. This fellowship extends when they meet with tutors and Writing Center directors from other schools at regional and national Writing Center Conferences.

Pete makes a telling point at the 2001 Southeastern Writing Center Conference.Writing Center Conferences are a wonderful place to meet people involved in improving writing on their own campuses, and they also provide a great opportunity for St. Mary's tutors to present their ideas, work and experiences to others. Conferences also allow tutors to build their resumes and spend the night on a town larger than Lexington Park, but that's beside the point. Recently, the St. Mary's College Writing Center has participated in the Mid-Atlantic Writing Center Association Conference, the 1999 National Writing Center Conference at Penn State and the 2001 Southeastern Writing Center Conference at Auburn University. At both conferences St. Mary's College tutors were among the presenters.
