  • Students are expected to participate in the writing consultation process
  • While drop-in writing consultations are possible, you are strongly encouraged to book an appointment
  • Appointments can be booked up to one week ahead of time and are available on a first-come, first-served basis (appointments are based on tutor availability and are not guaranteed)
  • Maximum one 60 minute session per day; maximum five sessions per week
  • Appointments can be cancelled up to 30 minutes before your scheduled time
  • After two "no show" appointments or three cancelled appointments, your online tutoring account may be suspended until you speak with a member of the LSC staff
  • Remember: this is a service provided for students, by students

 

Assignments

  • Book your appointment at least 24 hours before your assignment is due, so that you have enough time to make revisions
