Writing & Reading Center
Tutoring Policies


1. Tutors will help students learn how to edit your own writing.

Tutors will not proofread or edit your assignments, but will gladly work with you to ​improve your skills.

2. Schedule an appointment to reserve a tutoring session.

Students may schedule one tutoring session per day.

3. Tutors may assist with one assignment per appointment.

For assistance with two assignments, please sch​edule two separate appointments.

4. Tutors may assist with any assignment unless your instructor informs us otherwise.

If your instructor prefers that we not be a resource for an assignment, 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 be on time for your appointment and reschedule or cancel, if needed.

If you no-show for three or more appointments in one semester, you will be limited to waitlisted tutoring until the semester’s end. If you are running late, please contact wrc@uhd.edu and we will reserve the remaining time without canceling the appointment. 

6. Tutors cannot speculate about assignment grades.

Tutors can, however, share thoughts about your writing’s needs and strengths. Please consult with your instructor for any questions about your grades.

7. Tutors cannot assist current classmates.

Students are welcome to choose any other tutor on our​ staff.

8. Only tutors who have completed ENG 3318 may tutor ENG 3318 students.

If seeking help for this course, please schedule an appointment with a WRC professional or graduate tutor.

9. Student tutoring records are confidential.*

If your instructor requires proof that you participated in tutoring, you may share an email copy of the tutoring session summary sent to your GatorMail.

*Unless otherwise required by university policy, such as Title IX concerns.
