Students meet a tutor in person or in an online chatroom with audio and video capabilities. Tutors can share feedback and clarify the next steps for a particular assignment or help students assess where they are in their reading and writing skills and recommend what they should do next. In order to better assist students during appointments, students should email their tutor the following ahead of time:
- Assignment sheet/directions
- Drafts or any source material
- Instructor’s comments/feedback
Skill A la Carte
These 30-minute workshops are for students who don't have an assignment they want to work on but nonetheless want to improve their reading and writing skills. Any student, from developmental to honors, can request a Skill A la Carte in reading, writing, punctuation, parts of speech, and/or sentence structure.
