How to Schedule an Appointment

For information on how to schedule an appointment using EAB Navigate, please see this guide: "How to Schedule a Tutoring and Writing Center Appointment."

If you aren't sure what kind of tutoring you need, please refer to our Academic Support Guide


We are open for the summer! 

We offer in-person tutoring appointments in Olin Library and virtual, synchronous appointments via WebEx. We use EAB Navigate for appointment scheduling and reporting. See this guide for step-by-step instructions on scheduling an appointment.

Appointments must be made at least 18 hours in advance. If you cannot find an appointment at a time that works for you, you can use one of our drop-in times, or click "request an appointment" under the schedule of times in EAB and we will work with our tutors to accommodate your schedule as best we can.

The minimum appointment time for content tutoring is 30 minutes. The minimum appointment time for a writing consultation is 45 minutes. 

In-Person Appointments
  • At the time of your appointment, you can find your tutor in the Tutoring & Writing Center on the 2nd (main) floor of Olin Library. When you enter through the main entrance to the building, turn left past the circulation desk and walk all the way to the end of the hallway. Turn right into the Lakeview Lounge area to find your tutor (you can find your tutor's name in your appointment confirmation email).
  • We have set up the TWC space to maximize physical distance and safety; please do not move the furniture. If you would be more comfortable relocating outside, to elsewhere in Olin Library, or to another academic building such as Bush or Kathleen W. Rollins Hall, you may do so after meeting up with your tutor in the TWC.
  • In accordance with the College's COVID-19 Policy and Tars Promisetutors and students MUST wear face masks over their noses and mouths for the entirety of the session. Failure to adhere to covid-related safety protocols may result in you being limited to virtual tutoring only. 
Virtual Appointments
  • If you have scheduled a virtual appointment, he link to the tutor's WebEx room will be in your appointment confirmation and under "appointment details" in EAB Navigate. 
  • Before your session begins, please have any links or files ready that you'd like to share with your tutor.
