Writing Center Private Tutoring

In a one-hour private appointment you can expect to:

  • Meet with one of our professional Writing Center staff members online
  • Receive extended feedback on specific writing projects, such as dissertations and theses
  • Develop your overall writing abilities

The fee for each appointment is $50 and will be charged to your Bursar Account.


Students must cancel appointments no later than 24 hours in advance. Appointments that are not canceled will be registered as ‘no show’. After 3 no-shows, the student loses the privilege of booking appointments through TutorTrac and must meet with the Tutoring Services Coordinator in order for their access to the system to be reinstated.

Fee-based appointments are charged to the student’s bursar account unless cancelled at least 24 hours in advance.

In case of an emergency in which the student cannot access TutorTrac to cancel their appointment, they may call the THINK TANK front desk at (520) 626-0530.
