A tutor will work with you for about twenty minutes, looking at an aspect or problem you might be having with the reading or writing process. You can come back as many times as you want for another twenty-minute session. We will help you learn to edit and proofread your own work, and help you develop skills to improve your reading.

Please bring a copy of your assignments, your books, and any other material you feel will help us help you.
