Peer Tutor and TA Handbook

Welcome TAs and tutors to the Center for Writing and Academic Achievement (CWAA). You have been recommended by faculty to serve as a tutor, TA, APM or Fellow to your peers, which is a great honor that comes with considerable responsibility. You have accepted an important and challenging duty, as your role involves both the command of an academic subject area and strong interpersonal skills. You can encourage students to reach their academic potential, and your positive interaction with students can make a critical difference in their educational endeavors.

The purpose of this handbook is twofold. First, it is to provide you with information specific to the CWAA programs at Stonehill College. Secondly, it is a resource that may benefit you as you build and improve your tutoring methods and teaching assistant skills. The information in this packet is designed to help you achieve the best results possible, as you become both efficient and effective in your role.

Thank you for your hard work and dedication to the CWAA – we wouldn’t be here without you!
