To request a tutor for a course, please stop by at the front desk at the Writing Center (first floor, Brothers College) and fill out a request for tutor form. You can ask the desk attendant for a form. If no one is at the desk, please leave us a note with your e-mail, and we will be in touch.
Once we receive your request, we will set up an initial appointment with you and the tutor in the Writing Center to go over tutoring regulations and expectations. After this first meeting, tutors and students set up their own meeting schedules. Please note that if we don’t have a tutor for your course on our roster, it might take us 5-7 days to hire a tutor. While we do our best to connect students with tutors, please know that we cannot guarantee a tutor for every course.
Most tutoring will be conducted as one-on-one sessions. Before mid-terms and finals, we set up walk-in hours for a selected number of courses that present a high demand. Walk-in hours will be available on this website.
Students are required to complete the second half of the (purple) end-of-session form at the end of every session. Tutors will have this form with them at every session, and will complete the top half at the beginning of the session in conversation with the student.
Some Useful Information About Appointments:
For one-on-one sessions, each student is allowed 3 hours of tutoring per subject per week. No exceptions.
If you have academic accommodations, please e-mail CLA Academic Services and we will try to set up extended sessions depending on tutor availability.
If a student is more than 10 minutes late for an appointment without prior communication with tutor or staff, s/he will be considered a ‘no show,’ and this absence will be noted by the tutor on the purple end-of-session form. After 2 (two) no shows, clients will lose scheduling privileges for the remainder of that semester, and will need to contact the program staff directly about future sessions.
