What to Expect . . .
Want a second opinion? Meet with a tutor for personalized help in developing and expressing your ideas. Our tutors can help you with all types of assignments at any stage in your work, whether you're just getting started or putting on the final polish.
- If you'd like help on a specific assignment, remember to bring all of the instructions you have received (i.e., syllabus, assignment sheet, grading rubric).
- When you complete our online booking form, try to give as much information as possible. If you'd like to work on a general skill (e.g., comma splices) rather than a specific assignment, just let us know!
- Because of privacy considerations, if you are working on a group project, you should either (1) bring just your part of the assignment for review or (2) bring your groupmates along!
- To make sure you get the greatest benefit from your consultation, your tutor will work with you, not for you. Come prepared to learn actively!
If you are more than 10 minutes late for an appointment, you forfeit your spot, so please be on time!
How to Find Us . . .
We offer both online and face-to-face appointments. Face-to-face appointments occur on campus in various spaces: be sure to check the schedule or your confirmation email for details. Online appointments occur in a virtual classroom, where you can engage with a tutor in real time through audio, video, and screen-sharing technology.
To make an appointment, check out our schedule and click on "Book Now." Next, select whether you would like an online appointment or a face-to-face appointment. Appointments may be booked up to 24 hours in advance. After the 24-hour booking deadline has passed, available appointments will no longer appear online; after this point, online appointments are no longer available. However, you can still drop in in person to see if we're free for a face-to-face session! Simply check the schedule to see which room we're in, and then drop by. At the beginning of his or her shift, the tutor will post a printed copy of his or her schedule on the door of the tutoring room. Our tutors will take drop-ins if (1) the tutor has empty slots in his or her shift or (2) if a student is more than 10 minutes late for a scheduled consultation and has, thus, forfeited the spot.
