More about WIP tutors

Who We Are

Writing Intensive Program (WIP) peer tutors and writing fellows are undergraduates who have successfully completed the WIP course for which they tutor. They are not only good writers but also understand how to write within their discipline.

What We Do

The Center for Academic Writing (CAW) provides peer tutoring for students who are enrolled in WIP courses that have WIP peer tutors and writing fellows affiliated with them. WIP peer tutors and writing fellows help students of all abilities become better writers by helping them focus on every step of the writing process - from brainstorming ideas, prewriting, and outlining to drafting, revising, and editing. You don't need to have a completed draft to meet with peer tutors or writing fellows.

Peer tutors and writing fellows can provide the most effective help if students come early in the assignment process and return throughout the semester. Please remember, peer tutors and writing fellows are not graders, proofreaders or editors. We encourage you to work with your WIP peer tutor or writing fellow more than once on the same assignment!

If you are looking for help with a non-WIP course, the Learning Success Center offers writing support for all NEIU students in all NEIU courses.

During Summer 2021, all WIP peer tutors work with students remotely through Nmail Meet. Students should use Nmail Chat to contact the Learning Success Center to make an appointment.

To make the most out of your tutoring session, we recommend that you have the following:

  • A digital version of your work
  • Class notes
  • Syllabus
  • Textbooks
  • Assignment description

Please note that peer tutors and writing fellows will not write on your documents.
