John Murphy, Director, jbm9d @ virginia.edu
Graduate students trained in ENWR will tutor students at any stage of the paper-writing process: brainstorming, outlining, drafting, revision. Tutors also write summaries of each tutorial, which you can read at the Writing Center. Tutoring sessions are free of charge.
 

Association Deans (924-3351)
When students are in trouble (in danger of failing, missing in action), it's a good idea to contact their association deans. Individual deans can be reached through the main number in Garrett Hall.
 

Academic Advisors for Athletes
Advisors are geniuses at motivating student-athletes; contact them if a student-athlete is having trouble living up to your expectations in class.

ESL Students

Consult the Guide to Identifying ESL students (under General Pedgagogy) to help you recognize which ESL students might need additional support. Students who have significant trouble with grammar and syntax are good candidates for ENWR 107, which deals with these issues. The class is pass/fail, meets once a week, and is one credit hour. Contact Jane Boatner (jeb2cd@virginia.edu).
 
The Writing Center also has some tutors with training and experience in working with ESL students; students with ESL needs should ask for an ESL tutor when scheduling an appointment.
 

Learning Needs and Evaluation Center (923-5180)

If you suspect that a student has an undiagnosed learning disability, you should first speak with someone in the Writing Program and then possibly suggest that the student contact the LNEC. Such services can be costly after initial interviews.
