Writing Lab Tutors needed

From Christopher J. Voeglein, Purdue Writing Lab Secretary:

The Writing Lab is looking for talented undergraduates to join our tutoring staff. We’re contacting you because prospective tutors would take a course during Fall 2017 to prepare them to work with students on a variety of documents and course assignments. In general, tutors work from 3 – 7 hours per week and gain a lot of experience.  All majors are invited to apply.

We’ll hold a callout for interested students on Monday, March 27th at 6:00 pm in HEAV 220, which will include information about the training course students take called ENGL 39000.  More information can also be found at https://owl.english.purdue.edu/writinglab/undergradopportunities.
