Weekly Tutoring Schedule

The Writing Lab offers tutoring to review the rules of grammar and writing through the weekly Skill-of-the-Week sessions. Skills Tutoring is available online only during the summer of 2020. Sessions will take place on Mondays at 12:00, 1:00, 2:00, 3:00, and 4:00 p.m. and on Thursdays at 1:00 and 11:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. Make an appointment through Navigate, and see the instructions for virtual tutoring in the "Online Interactive Skill-of-the-Week Tutoring" section of this site.


Things to Consider About Tutoring

  • During the fall and spring semesters, Skill-of-the-Week sessions are offered only on Thursdays and Fridays during the dates specified below;
  • Appointments and walk-ins are available from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; each session begins on the hour, so the last session of the day begins at 4:00 p.m.;
  • The letters a and b beside a week in the schedule indicate that two different skills are offered that week. Of the 10 weeks the Lab offers hourly grammar sessions, four of those weeks are two-skill weeks, meaning you might need to attend two sessions during those weeks.
