We all want to be good at our jobs and we know from experience how helpful—and necessary—feedback on our work is in order to know if we are indeed doing our job well.

Quarterly Check-ins

For each quarter you work for us, you will check in with an assigned administrator to discuss your ongoing professional development as a tutor and employee.
During your last quarter at the Writing Center, your check-in meeting will also include an exit interview.

🏁 Your Final Quarter

For your final quarter of employment at the Writing Center, you complete a quarterly SMART Goal as usual, and you also include a holistic reflection letter on your experience at the Writing Center instead of tutoring reflections. Identified based on the information you submit to the Writing Center regarding your employment plans, tutors completing their final quarter at the Writing Center will be invited to use the Writing Center Quarterly Check-in: Exit Interview template in Digication.
