Peer to Peer Tutoring Sessions

The Writing Lab accepts walk-ins, but we do encourage that students review the tutors’ schedules BEFORE coming into the lab. Please remember to bring your assignment sheet/writing prompt with your draft when you arrive. We also encourage students to attend the lab more than once for an assignment to ensure that they get the most help possible on their essays and papers.

Group Tutorials

Some instructors may have extremely involved composition assignments or assignments that students have struggled with in the past. Faculty may request that a tutor give a brief group tutorial for students who may need some extra clarity. Please use the contact form to schedule a group tutorial for your students.
