Meet with one of our tutors for help in a specific subject. We can help you understand content that seems challenging, review for quizzes and exams, and review assignments, quizzes, exams, and projects that you have already submitted. We cannot help you complete homework assignments, but we can help you work on similar problems or concepts.
We can help you with any stage of the writing process from deciding on a topic to proofreading a "finished" paper for purposes of reaching clarity. A writing consultation is very much a conversation between you and your consultant. We will ask you to communicate the ideas you wish to convey and will help you determine if the paper you are writing adequately addresses the assignment.
