I've only been a tutor for a semester, but I have had so many awesome experiences (and some I will never forget).
Being the only tutor in D period on Tuesdays and Fridats, I have come across a rare phenomenon: The Tutor's Dilemma.
The Tutor's Dilemma is unlike any other. Imagine you're me, all alone in D period and a student walks in. No matter how you feel, or your expertise in the subject, you have to help them. You might not think it;s that bad. But what do you do when two student's come in, and worse—they both requested you.
Those unfamiliar with Writing Center may say "Help them both,"but sessions always run long. It would be impossible to help both and maintain the quality of the session.
Now, I'm trapped in the Tutor's Dilemma, forced to choose one and turn the other away. But how can I, when I became a tutor for the Writing Center, I vowed to help anyone in need. Being forced to choose goes against everything I believe in, but I had to do it.
