Tutors in the Writer’s Resource Lab are CSULB undergraduate and graduate students interested in helping other students become better writers. They are all excellent writers, and most are preparing for careers teaching writing at the high school, community college, or university level. In fact, some are tutoring and teaching writing courses simultaneously. All of our tutors are required to participate in on-going training so that they are aware of current issues/practices in tutoring and can further develop their skills in teaching writing.
