In articulating an understanding of the term 'tutoring' and its implications within writing center work, Grutsch McKinney contends, "The writing center is a support service, most believe, with no ambitions of being part of the curriculum. Students bring in the work they are completing for classes and tutors help them reach the goals the instructors have set" (66).
In articulating an understanding of the term 'tutoring' and its implications within writing center work, Grutsch McKinney contends that tutors and the broader writing center are available as secondary support to the primary space of the classroom and the professor's assignments and objectives (66).
