In the writing center, self-confidence is essential. Students respect and trust the advice of a tutor who can exhibit confidence in themselves. Self-confidence in tutoring can be derived from personal experience as well as from observations of the methods of other fellow tutors. Peer observations provide an opportunity for tutors to learn additional skills, and to gain confidence in themselves.
