Peer tutors in the Douglas College Learning Centre are students at BC universities and colleges. They are experienced academic writers who have firsthand knowledge and experience of what college instructors expect from written assignments.
We have two goals in our writing tutoring:
The role tutors do not take on is copy editor; we will not fix students' papers for them.
WriteAway is a service in BC that gives students at participating institutions the opportunity to receive online writing assistance. Qualified tutors from each of the participating institutions staff the service and provide feedback on students' draft writing assignments.
