    How to Make an Appointment

    You can call us at (678) 839-6513, visit us in TLC 1201, or email us at

    To make an appointment you will need your:
    • Class and Section Number for your assignment (For example, ENGL 1101-11)
    • Student ID 917#
    • Student email address (
    • Telephone number
    • Your preferred appointment date and time

    You can schedule a 1-hour tutorial if English is not your first language, if you have a documented learning disability, or if you are a graduate student.

    It's best to schedule your tutorial well before your assignment is due, so you'll have time to improve your work.

    Sometimes we're booked, and your preferred appointment time may not be available; we'll absolutely do our best to work something out. All the same, it's smart to make an appointment 2-4 days before it becomes urgent.

    Try to let us know a day in advance if you need to cancel your tutorial.

  • What to Bring
    What to Bring

    When you come in for your tutorial, please bring a printed copy of your work, rather than your laptop. We do not have printing services here at the UWC, but there are printing services in the TLC computer lab just down the hall.

    If you are in the beginning stages of your assignment (i.e. brainstorming) and don't have a completed draft, bring your assignment from your professor and any notes you've taken about the assignment.

    You will also need to have in mind a question or concern about your assignment. Ask yourself what your greatest concern is. What area do you struggle with the most? What part of your paper makes you feel uncertain?

  • What to Expect During a Tutorial
    What to Expect During a Tutorial

    When you arrive at the UWC for your tutorial, you will check-in on the computer. This can take a moment or two. It is a good idea to arrive approximately 5 minutes early. If you arrive more than 10 minutes late, you will miss out on your tutorial and need to reschedule.

    The receptionist will show you to your tutor.

    During your tutorial, your tutor will begin by asking about your concerns. This is the time to let your tutor know exactly what you're worried about or what aspect of your writing assignment is posing a challenge. Tutors are seeking to address your concerns, not identify your errors, so they will not evaluate or proofread your work. Instead, they will coach you through your problem areas so that you will be able to spot issues and correct your own work in the future. Please be understanding if your tutor and professor do not give you the same suggestions. They are two different people, after all. Also, try not to get too attached to one specific tutor. The more tutors you work with, the greater perspective you'll get on your writing.

    You will generally leave the tutorial with a new direction for revision or drafting. For this reason, it is ideal to schedule a tutorial at least 2-4 days before your assignment is due.


The Writing Center will be closed during the vacation schedule constructed by the University. The Academic calendar with the University schedule can be found here. Also, any University closure (e.g. for weather) will result in the closure of the Writing Center, which will not resume regular operating hours until campus reopens.
