Becoming a writing consultant
Are you interested in becoming a writing consultant?
Supporting writers and aiding in the development of their literacies is an immensely challenging and rewarding experience. However, before you apply, please be aware of the following expectations of working here.
– Writing consultants are peers (i.e., they are undergraduate and graduate students). While sometimes writing consultants will stay on after graduation, we primarily hire, train, and retain Queens College students.
– Writing consultants are expected to attend all paid training and development sessions. Training takes place at the beginning of the academic year and during monthly staff meetings.
– Writing consultants are expected to actively engage in the development of their tutoring pedagogies by reading and responding to current tutoring scholarship. Writing consultants will be expected to share their findings and/or reflections with coworkers and to contribute to the development of the Center’s best practices. (Writing consultants who are interested in developing tutoring research agendas and/or who are interested in pursuing tutoring or literacies scholarship are encouraged to apply.)
– Writing consultants are expected to work a minimum number of hours per week. (Currently, a minimum of four hours per week.)
In addition, potential applicants should know that the Queens College Writing Center is an inclusive student support space. We welcome all Queens College students and strive to meet their writing needs. Writing consultants are expected to uphold these core values. The Queens College Writing Center does not discriminate based on race, gender, religion, disability, or sexual orientation. The Center is deeply committed to building a culturally diverse and pluralistic staff committed to teaching and working in a multicultural environment. As such, applications from women, minorities, individuals with disabilities, and covered veterans are strongly encouraged.
