About the Consultants . . .
We understand that writers never outgrow the need for intelligent objective readers. Writing Center consultants are trained to address a wide range of writing issues: they are careful, critical, and kind readers. All consultants employed in the Writing Center complete a three-credit course entitled "Peer Tutoring in Writing."

Consultants in the Writing Center at Siena College are not necessarily "expert" writers, but they are deeply interested in and committed to striving for excellence in their own work and genuinely desire to help others achieve the same.  They are curious about all writers' ideas, are eager to learn from the writers they encounter, and are articulate and astute in posing challenging questions to writers about their work.

 

About the Student Leaders . . .
2013-2014 marks the sixth year for the Writing Center Student Leadership program.  Present leadership duties include helping with the daily operations within the Writing Center, promoting our services and special events, leading staff and in-class workshops, and mentoring new writing consultants.
