This project focuses on college students' writing habits, peer tutoring, and tutor training. Data was gathered from interviews with WPI writers and writing tutors as well as WPI's Writing Workshop's tutoring database. The literature review and data analysis show that many college students use an abbreviated writing process based on the one taught in pre-college English curriculums. Tutor training must encompass a greater discussion of these student-specific writing habits and the resulting demands they put on tutoring goals.
