You will meet one-on-one with a trained tutor for 15 or 30 minutes, or for 60 minutes if you self-identify as a non-native speaker of English or self-identify with a disability for which additional time would be beneficial.
Tutors will not write your assignments.
Instead, we will help you
Organize your thoughts
Write a thesis
Find and maintain your focus
Develop and support your ideas
Clarify your argument
Tackle grammar and style problems
Address issues particular to non-native writers of English
Bring your assignment sheet or prompt.
Bring a printout or a digital copy of your work. Notes and outlines are useful if you don't have a rough or full draft yet. Your tutor will want to comment on and annotate your work, so they need a copy of it.
Take notes while you're in the session: rely on a written record of your conversation with the tutor rather than on your memory.
After your appointment, follow up by
Booking another appointment: we're always happy to see you again for the same assignment.
