Grammar check - is Word my only option?

I'm writing a postgrad research paper. English is my second language (Afrikaans being my first), and though I am fluid in both, I still sometimes trip up on silly grammar issues with English, particularly tenses. I use Word, but was wondering -- does anyone know of software aimed specifically at writing academic/research texts? For what it's worth, I use MLA formatting with in text citation.

Tutoring at university: What to expect and what is expected.

I've just applied for my first university tutoring position (English Literature) and just want to know a bit about what I can expect. Example: how much of the preparation/material is guided by the lecturer of the course you end up tutoring for? Tutoring, like lecturing, seems to be one of those things that have no set route for getting into. While I'm sure the pay rate for tutoring on campus varies from one university (and probably, from one course) to another, is there an applicable standard rate to keep in mind? Any tips and advice will be greatly appreciated.
