Peer Tutors

Our 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.

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.
