Tutor Resources

This is a landing page for our tutors to find quick links to frequently-used resources. If you are a tutor, we would encourage you to open this page first if you have a question during your session. If you are a student curious about our resources, feel free to peruse through this page or ask our tutors about a resource you see! 

Find a citation resource 

Citation Tutorial & Resource Page – We have a page on our site with a number of citation resources to students’ questions. We have user-friendly handouts for APA, MLA, Chicago, and other common citation styles. Additionally, we have links to other helpful resources on campus. This is a good first step when helping with a citation question. 

Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) – Purdue OWL is an up-to-date resource with lots of wonderful examples on how to follow common citation guides. 

WOU Library Citation Guides – WOU Library also has wonderful and in-depth resources for following the common citation guides used at our university. You can find links to sample papers here, too.

APA Blog – Do you have a specific APA-citation question? Check out the blog for a quick answer.

Refer a student to another campus tutoring center 

WOU Free Tutoring Page: WOU offers a host of different free tutoring services across campus. This is a link to the free tutoring landing page with links to all the free tutoring centers across campus.

Course-Specific Tutoring Center: While we help with all things writing, we don’t help students with content-specific questions, and if students ask you for help with those types of questions (e.g., checking the reading to make sure they summarized correctly, asking you about a concept from a particular class), refer them to a class-

English Tutoring Center: We love helping international students with their writing, but we aren’t qualified to help them with all their linguistic questions. If international students need support in pronunciation, spelling, grammar, reading, or listening, refer them to the English Tutoring Center, where tutors are trained in linguistics and can provide specialized support. 

Computer Science Tutoring Center: If students need help with complex MS Office questions like creating complex tables and charts in Excel, refer them to the Computer Science Tutoring Center. We can help students make tweaks and comment on the rhetorical effectiveness of different charts, but our tutors are not all trained in this, and it is important to refer to the CS student tutors, who specialize in this area.

When a student needs support beyond the writing

Sometimes, students are experiencing anxiety or frustration, either because of their writing or other things going on in their lives. These challenges can interfere with your ability to serve them effectively as a tutor, and it is important to recognize when a student might benefit from additional support on campus. If you are working with a student you think could benefit from learning about campus support resources, consider guiding them to one of these pages:
