Math and Science Tutors

Math and science tutors can provide help with most undergraduate math courses, biology and chemistry. Students visit math and science tutors for help with homework, questions about new concepts, and preparation for tests and exams.

Writing Tutors

Writing tutors offer help with writing assignments for all courses. Writing tutoring happens when students request assistance with grammar and punctuation, voice, organization and formatting such as APA, Chicago style and MLA. Writing consultation happens when students drop in to "brainstorm” a topic, develop their ideas, or review a first draft.

Students should not expect tutors to proofread or edit their assignments. Instead, tutors help students learn what to look for when they proofread their own writing.

ESL Tutors

ESL tutors help students that are developing their English language writing skills. These tutors help with writing assignments for all courses. As with writing tutors, the ESL tutors assist with grammar and punctuation, voice, organization and formatting such as APA, Chicago style and MLA. Writing consultation happens when students drop in to “brainstorm” a topic, develop their ideas, or review a first draft.

Students should not expect tutors to proofread or edit their assignments. Instead, tutors help students learn what to look for when they proofread their own writing.
