The Center's free, collaborative consultations are student-driven, which means that the learning experience is propelled by the specific questions and individual needs a student brings to a tutoring session. As a result, the Writing and Learning Center offers a unique space on campus dedicated to student-centered learning.
Tutoring is available in person at four locations on campus and online via Zoom. The main tutoring hub is located at Writing and Learning Center in Kennedy Library, Room 111C. Booking tutoring appointments in advance is recommended, but drop-in, last-minute appointments are also possible as availability allows.
