Sign up for an appointment in the sign up book on the small table outside of the Writing Center. Choose one 20-minute slot, and be sure to write your full name. Read the directions on what to bring with you to your appointment. Once you have signed up for an appointment, be sure to write that appointment down in your planner and show up to your appointment on time.
Your tutor will ask you to explain the assignment, and then together you will set goals for the session. He or she will then ask you to read the draft out loud so you can catch any areas that might need improvement. Finally, the tutor will ask you questions about the piece and reflect back to you what he or she was unclear about in the draft. He or she will also make suggestions for how you might improve it for the final draft.
