The Center for Writing and Academic Achievement (CWAA) strives to support you and your course goals by overseeing a segment of the Teaching Assistant program and by providing a variety of peer tutoring services such as Math Lab, Atrium Tutoring, and drop-in tutoring hours in the Center (MacPhaidin 314) for writing and a variety of subjects.
Our tutors are undergraduates seeking to gain more in-depth knowledge in their respective subject while acquiring valuable experience providing peer assistance. The peer tutors must be recommended by a faculty member, but are hired and trained through the CWAA.
The primary role of an undergraduate Teaching Assistant (TA) is to provide academic support that benefits students enrolled in the course. TAs work within a variety of courses across academic disciplines. All students are required to follow the College's Community Standards.
Faculty Referrals for Tutoring
Are you a Stonehill faculty or staff member who has identified the need for one of your students to visit a peer tutor or a professional writing tutor? If so, please fill out the Faculty/Staff Referral Form. Once we have received the request, we will reach out to the student and to you in order to find a peer tutor who can assist in the requested subject. Please know that this process can take time, as the Coordinator must wait for responses from interested parties. For writing assistance, the student will need to meet with the Director for an initial evaluation before being paired with a professional tutor.
Writing and Subject Tutor Nominations
The CWAA works closely with faculty to identify students who have the potential to become excellent Writing Tutors. If you or a colleague would like to nominate a student to become a Writing Tutor, please fill out this Writing Tutor Nomination form.
The CWAA also works closely with faculty to identify students who have the potential to become excellent Subject Tutors. If you or a colleague would like to nominate a student to become a Subject Tutor, please email Devon Sprague, Director.
