Arriving late means losing the appointment slot, but you can still get in line for a drop-in session.

 Post-session Review

  • For post-session review  after your tutoring session, you can request that the tutor look at your next draft and send you further feedback. On this page, you submit your revised draft, describing what your remaining concerns and questions are. This type of response is for students who have already had a tutoring session, online or face-to-face, and would like a follow-up look at a draft. Name the tutor you worked with or the day on which you had your tutoring session, and the tutor will give a follow-up response to your paper or project.

Get the Most out of a Writing Center Tutoring Session

  • Remember that you can talk with a tutor before you write the paper in order to understand the instructions or brainstorm ideas to research or write about. You can have as many tutoring sessions as you like while you develop and edit your writing.
  • Plan your time, coming in early in the writing process and leaving yourself time to revise. You may also want one or more follow-up sessions, and planning well allows you time to revise well and edit well.
  • Bring a description of the assignment, if available, and be as familiar as you can with your professor’s expectations.
  • Unless you are seeking a brainstorming session, bring a copy of your most recent draft of your paper or digital project. Also, our printers are available to print works to be tutored, and you can open your Adobe projects on our computers.
  • Let the tutor know what you are most concerned about, and be sure to ask questions. This relationship is meant to support your ability to compose and revise with confidence and skill.
  • If you make an appointment, be certain to arrive 5-10 minutes early in order to get the nearest available tutor to your time slot. Arriving late means losing the appointment slot, but you can still get in line for a drop-in session.
