What We Do
Purpose of Tutoring Sessions
The focus of tutoring sessions is to help writers gain one or two skills that they can apply to future writing assignments, thereby permanently improving their writing. Simply helping writers to edit their work does not result in long-term learning.
Therefore, tutoring sessions are not intended to:
take the place of in-class writing instruction or discussion of writing assignments
correct, edit, or make papers error-free
guarantee results or grades; writers are always responsible for their own work
We do accept walk-ins as well, so feel free to stop by during our regular hours.
Students are limited to two sessions per week.
Students who fail to show up for a scheduled appointment twice in one semester without giving a cancelation notice may not make another appointment until the following semester.
While two appointments may be made in the same week, we do not allow for back-to-back sessions. This both gives the student time to work on the material discussed in the first session and helps us avoid “editing” a full paper.
If a student is 15 minutes late for his/her appointment time, that appointment may be given to another student.
