"Proofreading at a Private Tutoring Agency"
Tania, who has been a freelance tutor and creator of a private tutoring agency in Edmonton, has found "proofreading"
impossible to avoid in this context. However, she attempted to redeem the practice of proofreading from infamy
by showing that it could go beyond mere surface correction. She also placed her tutoring practice within cultural
and academic contexts, describing the standards and practices of tutoring in Hong Kong, where 90% of her tutees
originate, and introducing the data from a "tutoring ethics" questionnaire sent to instructors at the
University of Alberta's English Department.
