What is our philosophy of tutoring writing online?

We have two goals in our writing tutoring: first, tutors take on the role of informed peer readers to let student writers know how their papers come across to other students; second, tutors use students' papers and questions as opportunities to suggest improvements in writing process and writing practice.
The role tutors do not take on is copy editor; we will not fix students' papers for them.
