What to Expect

Before the Tutorial


A few simple things can help you get the most out of your tutorial.

Do:

  • Arrive on time for your appointment; if you must miss the appointment, be sure to call and inform the Writing Center. (715-232-5284)
  • Bring along at least one hard copy of your paper or writing project. Bring along the assignment whenever possible.
  • Come to the tutorial with specific items to discuss or work on.

Don't:

  • Wait until the last minute or the day before your writing assignment is due to schedule an appointment; you will not have adequate time to revise and develop your work.

 

During the Tutorial


Here are several things to keep in mind during the tutorial.

Do:

  • Provide the tutor with any relevant information about your progress on and approach to the writing project and your writing process in general.
  • Keep an open mind when sharing your writing and receiving tutor feedback.
  • Take notes during the tutorial which you can use later for revision.

Don't:

  • Expect the tutor to correct or “fix” your paper for you; the tutor will collaborate with you to solve problems, suggest revisions, etc.
  • Expect the tutor to proofread or edit your work; this is your responsibility.
  • Expect the tutor to discuss or predict your grades on particular assignments; these discussions need to take place with your instructor, not the tutor.
  • Expect the tutor to solve problems which are unrelated to your writing assignment or your progress as a writer.
