Weekly Tutoring Schedule

The Writing Lab offers tutoring to review the rules of grammar and writing through the weekly Skill-of-the-Week sessions.


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. Check the chart at the bottom of this page for more information about two skill weeks;
