(from PeerCentered.Org, a blog for tutors)
We’ve all had them—the good writers. The ones who really know what they’re doing, who know what they’re talking about, who know the basic rules of grammar. The ones that make us draw a blank, a complete white wall of nothingness because—really—it is so tempting to stay at the surface level grammars and word choices and citations that we resist putting on our scuba gear and really diving in.
Check out the rest of this article - it provides some insights into being a tutor that aren't usually talked about.

"Always carry a note-book. And I mean always. The short-term memory only retains information for three minutes; unless it is committed to paper you can lose an idea for ever." — Will Self
I have always needed to carry notebooks around. My notebooks are pretty jumbled... there isn't much organization to them. I just write with whichever one I happen to have at the moment I come up with an idea or someone gives me an idea. I always have the best ideas at the most random times! Like in the shower. Or during class. Or right now.
Write away, write away, write away all!
to the Writing Center Everyone!
This new Spring semester is going to be so much fun! The Writing Center has made a few changes but I think it makes us better and more organized. We have a few new tutors, Anjeli, Kerry, Kelsey, Miles, Megan, and Sadie, if you have not met them yet, come on in and say HI! We are always happy to see new faces. Expanding the Writing Center to all parts of MSU is what we hope to accomplish this semester. We will be having Waffle Wednesdays starting up soon as well as another Write Night in the coming months. We are still located in Wilson 1-114 and our room is still orange and we are still growing!
Have a great semester!
