Appointments are occasionally available outside of the Writing Center's normal hours. Please email Christopher Alexander at christopher.alexander@avemaria.edu to inquire about available appointment times.

Making an appointment:

Visit the Writing Center to make an appointment with our tutors.

Walk-in tutoring sessions are available. However, scheduled appointments take priority, so if all tutors are already engaged in sessions, walk-ins will be asked to wait until an open slot is available or a no-show occurs.

Sessions are 30 minutes in duration.

Please keep in mind that it is advisable to make appointments in advance. There is no guarantee that a walk-in will be available to meet with a tutor.

What to bring to a tutoring session:

Please bring the following to every session:

Your assignment or paper prompt

Your copy of the primary text

Hard copies of any and all of your drafts, outlines, free-writing, etc.

Prior to your tutoring session, make sure that you have given time to thinking about your assignment. We are happy to help you brainstorm a paper or create an outline, but if you don't bring your own thoughts to the session, there's little we can do to help.

Cancellations and No-Shows

If you are more than 10 minutes late, you will lose your scheduled time to any walk-in students who are waiting.

If you know ahead that you will be unable to make it to a scheduled tutoring session, please email The Writing Center so your session can be made available to others.
