1. We help you learn to edit your own writing.
We will not edit work for you, but will gladly work with you to improve your skills.
2. We are appointment-based, but we accept walk-ins.
You are allowed up to 1 hour and 30 minutes of time per day. Up to 1 hour may be appointment time. If you would like to receive walk-in time after your 1-hour appointment, then you must wait 30 minutes before attempting a walk-in slot with any tutor.
3. Writers may work on one task per writing consultation.
For assistance with two writing tasks, please make two 30-minute appointments. For assistance with more than two writing tasks, please use our walk-in service.
4. We can assist with any assignment or take-home exam unless your instructor informs us otherwise.
If your instructor prefers that we not be a resource for an assignment or exam, then we advise that you consult with your instructor.
As with all other assignments, when you have an essay exam, we cannot tell you if the subject matter is correct or incorrect and we will not edit the work. We can assist with the communication of the subject matter and, as appropriate, will use questions to help guide you for understanding.
5. Please arrive on time, and cancel if needed.
If you are more than 5 minutes late without notifying us for a 30-minute consultation (10 minutes for a 1-hour consultation) or miss 3 or more appointments in one semester, you will be limited to walk-in tutoring only until semester’s end. If you are running late, please contact our front desk and we will reserve the remaining time without canceling the appointment.
6. Tutors cannot speculate about your grade.
We can, however, share our thoughts about your writing’s needs and strengths. Please consult with your instructor for any questions about your grade.
7. Tutors cannot assist current classmates.
Writers are welcome to choose any other tutor on our staff.
8. Only staff who have completed ENG 3318 may tutor ENG 3318 students.
If seeking help for this course, please consult WRC staff for assistance.
9. Your WRC records are confidential.*
If your instructor requires proof that you participated in tutoring, you may share your copy of the Conference Note summarizing your session.
*Unless otherwise required by university policy, such as Title IX concerns.
