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.

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 (email@example.com).
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.
