Each spring, the Writing Lab at Purdue recruits consultants (i.e. tutors) for the next academic year, and we are now accepting applications for 2016-2017. Follow the links below for information about each tutoring staff group. For more information about tutoring opportunities in the Writing Lab, please contact Tammy Conard-Salvo, Writing Lab Associate Director.
We are interested in reflecting the diversity of the Purdue community. Students from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply for positions in the Writing Lab.
The Writing Lab only employs graduate students in English at Purdue University for graduate tutoring jobs. We do not accept applications from graduate students in other departments or from other institutions, and students must have assistantship funding through the English Department.

You have the option of taking English 390A if you would like to tutor students in First Year Composition (English 106 or 108). You may take English 390B if you are interested in tutoring Business, Technical, and Professional Writing.
Information and application materials can be found in the Opportunities for Purdue Undergraduate Students section. We are now accepting applications for a special spring 2016 section of ENGL 390. The deadline for applications is 6:00 pm on Monday, October 17, 2016.
