Connecting the Dots: Writing Center Tutor Training and Student Orientation and Retention
Journal of College Orientation, Transition, and Retention
A difficulty administrators may face is supporting students as they strive to meet the challenges of academic writing. This literature review calls for a more robust focus on how writing center administrators design tutor training for effective orientation, transition, and retention among the student population. Through identifying issues of access, sociolinguistics, and grammar instruction, this paper highlights the ways in which writing center directors and administrators support the transition and retention of entering college students.
