  • - Answer specific, language-related questions on the first drafts of compositions (peer corrected or instructor corrected at 100 level, only instructors   corrected at 200 level), but only after you have already gone through the paper and interpreted the correction code.
  • - Answer specific questions about grammar, vocabulary, etc.
