Summer and Fall 2021 Updates
Our Zoom walk-in room will close at 3 pm on Friday, April 30th for the Spring Semester. We will re-open virtually and in-person on August 23rd.
For assistance and response within 48 hours, please contact [email protected].
Starting Fall 2021, we will be available in-person and virtually for your assistance. Tutoring will take place in-person and remotely. Writing Consultations and Success Workshops will be conducted remotely only. 315 Sutherland will be available for study space, computer and printer usage, and other resources.
If you would like to deposit a paper to have it reviewed by a Writing Consultant and receive feedback, please sign up for our Online Writing Lab.
Also this Fall, we will continue to host workshops as we did in Spring 2021.
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.
