The Writing Center Peer Tutor Program began in January 2005. Four students completed the initial training and began working in the Writing Center during the spring 2005 semester. In August, 2005 our training program received an Advanced Certification from the College Reading and Learning Association. This certification is recognized at colleges and universities nationwide.

Hello! My name is Nancy, and this is my fourth semester as a peer tutor in the Writing Center. In my leisure time, I enjoy playing a nice tennis game, watching comical movies, and spending time with my family and friends. I like helping others in almost any school subject, so I’m really looking forward to working with all students in the Writing Center. See you there!
Hello! My name is Billy, and I am proud to say that I am a peer tutor at your NVC Writing Center! This is my third year at NVC, and I plan to transfer to a UC school in Fall 2013. In my free time, I enjoy exercising, snowboarding, reading, and watching a vast array of movies. Also, I am a dedicated student, so on campus you’ll most likely find me studying in the library.
I joined the Writing Center staff to help students improve their writing and grammar skills. While helping students, I am also refining my skills—so we are both becoming better writers. I am always open to meeting and helping new students, so come on in and we’ll get started!
My name is Jennifer Peel, and this will be my 2nd year as a student at NVC, and my 2nd semester working as a peer tutor at the Writing Center. I plan to transfer to UC Davis sometime in 2014. During my free time, I enjoy reading, relaxing, skiing, spending time with my friends and family, enjoying life, and starting new adventures.
The Writing Center is a wonderful place where students of all ages can come and further their education in reading and writing. Everyone at the Writing Center is there to support and help you through any goal you want to accomplish. So, stop by to take a look, and feel free to ask us questions!
