Each year, the Center for Teaching and Learning employs 60 to 80 students in its Writer's Block and Red Room tutorial programs. Writing and subject tutors are carefully trained in both the pedagogical and procedural matters appropriate to their work, which also fulfills the College's experiential learning requirement.

Our tutors have presented work produced as part of their training at professional conferences in Savannah, GA; Sioux City, IA; Nevada, Las Vegas; Ames, IA; and Ann Arbor, MI. Two have published their works, one in Kairos: A Journal of Rhetoric, Technology, and Pedagogy, and the other in The Dangling Modifier, an international newsletter by and for peer educators. Still more tutors have used their work in the CTL as the basis for Honor’s Projects.

Writer's Block Program

Drawing upon students from across the curriculum, the CTL Writer's Block  employs 12 to 15 select students each year to work primarily with students seeking to improve their writing. Writer's Block tutors must earn two or more faculty endorsements, earn an A in CTL 202: Teaching Writing, and complete a training program certified by the College Reading and Learning Association. Working as a writing tutor is especially useful to students seeking to teach writing or to earn an assistantship to graduate school.

For more information, contact John Haslem, Director, 309-341-7151.

Red Room Tutoring Program

Seeking to support students in mathematics, the sciences, and modern languages, the CTL Tutorial Program employs 50 to 60 students each year to staff the Red Room tutorial tables and to work one-on-one with students needing support in their studies. Peer tutors must earn two or more faculty endorsements and complete a training program certified by the College Reading and Learning Association. Working as a peer tutor is especially useful to students seeking to enrich themselves while helping others or to enroll in graduate school.
