OGLESBY — Kali Goodchild of Ottawa, a student tutor in the Writing Center at Illinois Valley Community College, has been certified as a Level I International Tutor.
IVCC’s Writing Center is certified as offering an International Tutor Training Program (ITTP) by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA).
Tutors who complete the entire training program earn Level One certification, which can transfer with them to other ITTPC institutions.
Goodchild is studying business and says that writing is one of her passions.
“Tutoring has given me the chance to learn and grow as a person. Writing is not easy, and it’s very time consuming,” she said.
“It’s incredible that IVCC offers this free resource for students. Students can benefit from working with the Writing Center tutors and experiencing their guidance in all steps of the writing process.”
Over the past two years as a Writing Center tutor, Goodchild has completed the several hours of training and study mandated by the CRLA.
