The changing demographics of universities have resulted in changing demographics among writing center clientele; however, tutors are often underprepared to meet the language needs of students writing in a second language.

This paper explores the issues related to ESL training and details the intensive ESL-specific training for tutors conducted in the Purdue Writing Lab during the spring of 2013.
