What if I can't make it to one of your scheduled workshops?

Don't worry; if you can't make it to a workshop, it won't be held against you even if you are signed up to attend. You can sign up for another workshop session, or schedule a one-on-one tutoring session to cover the material.

Tutoring appointments are scheduled to start on the hour, and last fifty minutes.

(The final ten minutes are reserved for wrap-up, scheduling appointments, and other administrative tasks.)

Will you discuss the tutoring session with my instructor?

We won't do that without your written permission; our tutoring sessions are completely confidential. We have a saying that we're a little like Vegas in that respect: "What happens in Tutoring, stays in Tutoring!"

Having said that, if you fill out an information-release form, we can provide you with a signed note to let your instructor know that you attended a Tutoring session.

(Some instructors give extra credit for attending Tutoring appointments.)

Can I just walk in to your office to see a tutor?

If a tutor is available to help, he or she will certainly be glad to assist you. However, our tutors are in high demand, and we can't always guarantee that a walk-in appointment will be available.

We will be happy to schedule an appointment for you up to two weeks in advance, to ensure that we have a tutor available to help you.

Do you have any type of walk-in service?

We certainly do! Our walk-in Math Center and our walk-in Writing Center are extremely popular. You can click here to view our Locust Grove and Fredericksburg open Math Lab and Writing Lab hours.
