Review Quotes

The Oxford Guide for Writing Tutors is a helpful guide for new undergraduate writing tutors and covers both the basics of practice and the complexities--both theoretical and practical--of writing center work.--Neal Lerner, Northeastern University

This guide is an innovative approach to developing tutors who understand how to acquire, apply, and create knowledge within the context of writing center work. Teachers and students alike will benefit from its emphasis on grounding practice and theory in research, impacting professional development in writing centers for years to come.--Sarah Liggett, Louisiana State University

The Oxford Guide for Writing Tutors represents the cutting edge of writing center theory and practice. The methods it recommends are meticulously researched and provide writing tutors with a lot to think about and reflect on in their practice. I found the way in which it discussed tutoring in context to be refreshing and useful.--Clint Gardner, Salt Lake Community College

A well-researched introduction to writing center theory and scholarship with an overview of strategies for tutors and an excellent guide to conducting research in the writing center that will appeal to both tutors and writing center directors.--Jennifer Wells, New College of Florida
