• Sessions are 50 minutes long and on the hour.
     
  • Walk-in tutoring sessions are available, but we recommend making an appointment (313-577-2544), especially considering the heavy volume we handle near the end of the semester.
     
  • Students are ONLY allowed on session per day. If students schedule more than one appointment per day, the earliest appointment will be kept and the additional appointments will be canceled. If a student continues to schedule more than one appointment per day, the student will be removed from the system and will need to speak with the director to be reinstated.
     
  • Students must cancel at least three hours before their scheduled appointments. If students are a no show/no call more than two times in a row, the student will be removed from the system and will need to speak with the director to be reinstated.
     
  • During the session, we will work with students at any stage of writing, from starting the assignment to the finished product, from any discipline.
     
  • However, we do not edit papers. We focus upon larger order concerns during sessions such as content, critical thinking, development, analysis, organization, use of sources, etc. We will address editing concerns, but our goal it to inform you of the errors and help you understand the errors so that you can make corrections on your own and in the future.
     
  • We will not work with students if the paper is not their own. This means that you cannot bring in your roommate’s paper and have us review the paper for them. Students must be responsible for their own writing.
     
  • We cannot work with students on exams and tests. For instance, if you have been given a take home History Essay Exam, we cannot work with you on the essay. Doing so would be against the University Student Code of Conduct and be defined as cheating.
