Writing & Reading Tutoring
Tutoring is available for writing assignments, reading assignments, and research projects. You do not need to be enrolled in English or Reading to receive tutoring.
- Drop-in tutoring is available in 15-minute sessions. Additional drop-in sessions are available the same day as long as one hour has elapsed between sessions.
- Scheduled tutoring appointments are available in 30-minute sessions. Students should bring their assignment and all related course materials to the session.
Note: Tutoring staff will wait 5 minutes for late-arriving students. After 5 minutes, the session will be offered to another student or canceled. To schedule an appointment, please contact the Writing & Reading Success Center.
