I am the writing specialist, and I help students work through
interpretations of literature. It's my favorite part of the job. I enjoy
asking questions that lead them to an understanding of the work. From
there, we work on building their thesis (if a paper is being assigned),
which is crucial. I also have an ESL tutor who is often asked to help
students understand what they read. She isn't comfortable with this. She
helps them with the meaning of the words, but refers them to their teacher
or to me for most questions about the author's meaning. I doubt if peer
tutors could help other students with interpretation.
