What is a tutor and what is a teacher? What roles do they play in the construction of writing and the teaching of it? These identities, and their unique approaches to teaching, initially served as struggling points of my pedagogical identity. Many individuals who have ever tutored writing or taught composition can relate to this pedagogical trial by fire. So, then, while under the duress of identity how can a teacher/tutor consolidate these distinct practices? What may seem to be a crisis of identity is actually a crisis of self, best solved by identifying these frustrations and compiling the best parts of both identities into a cohesive whole. Once the tutor and teacher are one, learning is best facilitated in any composition setting.
