Supporting Business Students in the Writing Center
This project builds on Armand St. Pierre’s 2017 study of how writing tutors can assist engineering students without fully comprehending the technical language. We first explore how the writing center can help students in business by synthesizing previous research, exploring the debate of specialized and generalized tutoring in writing centers, business writing requirements, and how the writing center can support business writers. Then we analyze interviews conducted with two business professors to help tutors gain insight into business students’ requirements. Understanding the key features of business writing will better prepare tutors to help students with their specific genres.
