Appointments can be scheduled remotely via ZOOM links or by calling the LAC.

  • Tutoring sessions are 50 minutes in length.
  • Appointments can be scheduled two per week for two consecutive weeks and you may schedule two appointments per week per class. (Visits to the Math Café and Learning Commons are unlimited and do not count towards your two LAC appointments).
  • Be prepared! Have all necessary texts and materials with you.
  • Write down any specific questions you have.
  • We do not do your homework for you or act as an editing service.  Tutors can help you learn to proofread your work and prepare it for submission.  Be sure to do your homework and mark those areas that gave you trouble.
  • We do not help you complete graded tests or quizzes (paper or electronic).  Tutors will work with you on similar problems/questions in order to illustrate or clarify a process.
  • Call or visit us if you will be late or to cancel or reschedule your tutoring session.
  • If you are more than 10 minutes late without calling, someone else can take your appointment. You can take the place of a “no-show” 10 minutes past the appointment start time.
  • If you consistently cancel appointments, you may lose appointment scheduling privileges. You will be welcome to drop in for services, and if we have staff available, we will accommodate you as a walk-in.
