Weekly Tutoring Schedule

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


Things to Consider About Tutoring

  • Skill-of-the-Week sessions are offered only during the dates specified below 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.;
  • Skill-of-the-Week sessions will not be available on Mondays from 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m., Tuesdays from 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m., or Wednesdays from 12:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. during the Spring 2019 semester;
  • During the Spring 2019 semester, the Writing Lab will be offering MLA, Chicago, and APA Style Guide Workshops;
  • Consider our Grammar Classmate @ 8 and Grammar Live @ 5 on Google Hangouts sessions if you miss a skill;
  • 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.
