Student Tutors 2015/2016
Tutors at the Writing Centre are selected from among the best undergraduate
students at Laurier. They most often are referred to us by faculty members. They all have a high GPA (above 10), excel
as writers, and are keenly interested in helping fellow students become
strong writers. In addition, we also employ outstanding graduate student
All our tutors receive initial and ongoing training and are paid for their work.

Short biographies of our current undergraduate tutors are available below.
My name is Seth, and I am in the third year of a PhD in History at Wilfrid Laurier University, which I began immediately after finishing my MA, also in history, at McMaster University. For my dissertation, I am studying Aboriginal cultural and political movements in Canadian prisons between 1958 and 1996. When I am not working on dissertation related projects, I play ball hockey, go mountain biking, or spend time with my wife and one year old daughter, Morgan.
This is my second year as a tutor at the Writing Centre. Working with students to help them communicate their ideas effectively has been one of the most rewarding parts of my time so far as a graduate student. I look forward to seeing you here soon.
