My tutoring philosophy is that since the Ott is an open and welcoming place, our tutors should reflect that as well. My tutoring style focuses on being comfortable and offering positive comments to improve projects. I remember how nervous I was when I went to the writing center, but my tutor made me feel comfortable which improved the entire experience. I hope that as a tutor, I can make any writer feel comfortable. I am also a very positive person, so I love offering positive feedback to writers. Overall, I want to focus on the entire writing process in conferences. Whether it is brainstorming or final edits, I want my tutoring process to be a more holistic approach.
