Who are we?

We are a community of writers committed to our primary objective: helping students at all levels achieve their writing goals.

We welcome inquiries about working with us. The Writing Center offers three employment categories for tutors.

Peer tutors are confident writers who want to share that confidence with others. Like other Metropolitan students, they often have substantial career and life experience. Peer tutors participate in 12 hours of interactive training and observe tutorials. The tutor training and experience can be folded into our internship, Application of Composition Theory, at both graduate and undergraduate levels.

Graduate tutors have undergraduate degrees from Metropolitan State or another college or university; some are volunteer Metropolitan alumni. These tutors contribute both the knowledge of other disciplines and their own considerable writing experience.

Faculty tutors are community faculty members at Metropolitan State. Beyond tutoring, they train, mentor, and encourage graduate and peer tutors.

Support Staff: Without our friendly, kind, capable support staff, we couldn't, frankly, run the place. They make appointments, keep us in place and on time, maintain our equipment, supplies, and handouts, and record and report our efforts. Their expertise lies first in human relations: they remain calm at all times. Beyond that, their technical skills in document design and database management keep us afloat from day to day.

Please direct questions about any of these positions to Julie Thompson, Director at 651-793-1461 or julie.thompson@metrostate.edu.</P
