Want to be a Peer Tutor? Join our Teams!

Our drop-in peer tutor team is made up of University of Waterloo upper year undergraduate and graduate students from a variety of faculties and academic backgrounds who are trained to provide one-to-one support for students on any writing and communication task on a drop-in basis.

Our Arts First peer tutor team is comprised of University of Waterloo undergraduate Arts students from a variety of majors who provide one-to-one and group support embedded into Arts 130 and Arts 140 classes.

All of our tutors are trained to work with students to identify areas of growth and next steps for an assignment or communication task, and we provide them with the resources needed to achieve their goals. Our work is driven by writing centre research and scholarship. 

Students often return to work with tutors regularly, and we love to build ongoing tutoring relationships with students at all stages, from first-year undergraduates to dissertators. 

Our call for applicants usually goes out in March. We hold interviews in the winter term to hire staff for the fall.
