How can I prepare for my tutorial?

For walk-ins, please bring two copies of your paper, the assignment guidelines, and a copy of the writing feedback form. The feedback form is available on the Writing Center News Conference.

For pre-scheduled appointments, please send your paper, assignment guidelines, and feedback form (see Writing Center New conference) to your tutor 24 to 48 hours in advance. This will allow your tutor to read your paper ahead of time and learn what you want to discuss during your session. On the day of your session, bring a copy of your paper. If this is a second or third session on the same paper, please bring along any notes or comments form your previous session, if possible. What if my paper is too long to discuss in a 45 minute session?If your paper is 15+, it may not be possible for your tutor to read your paper a day ahead of time orĀ  to discuss with you within your 45 minute session. In this case, we recommend that you submit your paper well in advance of your appointment and to schedule even a series of two or three appointments to discuss your paper.
