The Writing Center, a member of the Advising and Learning Commons, offers writing coaching as a free service available to all Prescott College students, designed to help students progress towards academic success. Due to considerable demand for these services, dedicated master’s-level Peer Writing Coaches are needed. Because graduate programs at Prescott College are primarily low residency, this position can be filled by remote employees.
Master Peer Writing Coaches will:
- Hold online conferences with graduate students to assist them with development, organization, voice, and mechanics in the context of a variety of writing tasks.
- Provide asynchronous review and feedback in margin notes and narrative format for a variety of graduate-level writing assignments.
- Write a brief summary and assessment of each conference.
- Compile and/or develop relevant instructional materials as needed.
- Participate in an initial training session and ongoing check-ins with the director of the Writing and Tutoring Center.
Specific hours of employment are flexible and determined primarily based on student schedules and need. Nighttime and weekend appointments are frequently necessary. Weekly hours may vary, but the Graduate Writing Coach should be able to work up to 20 hours per week during peak demand times.
