Types of Appointments
In-Person: Meet face-to-face with one of our tutors
Email (for Writing): Before your appointment, email your paper and assignment instructions to email@example.com. A tutor reviews your paper, makes comments, and emails your paper back to you.
Online (for Writing)*: Before your appointment, email your paper and assignment instructions to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will receive instructions via email to access a virtual classroom for your appointment. A tutor will communicate with you via microphone, and you will be able to work on your paper through Desktop Sharing.
*Online appointments may be available for additional subjects. Contact The Learning Hub for more information.
Specific instructions about appointments:
- Prep Time: Bring or send your assignment instructions and assignment for the tutor’s “prep” time to BRK 460 or email@example.com so that the tutor can prepare for the appointment.
- Busy Periods: The Learning Hub gets very busy with appointments beginning with midterms until the end of the semester. If you know that you will need an appointment, it’s best to schedule the appointment
as soon as possible. Try to avoid scheduling the appointment the same day the assignment is due. If we are too busy and can’t find a time to get you an appointment, please be patient with us and know that we are doing the best we can to help you in a timely manner with the resources we have.
