“Think Tank is a good supplement to lecture, it clarifies a lot of concepts I sometimes don't get. The tutors are really helpful, I've never come across one that didn't help me.” —Tyrene H., Bio-Anthropology

Writing Center Private Tutoring
If you are looking for writing support beyond the Writing Center's free drop-in services, our professional staff is available to meet with you for a fee. These hour-long sessions offer additional flexibility for scheduling and the opportunity to meet for regular appointments. Our staff can offer helpful feedback to support your overall development as a writer, or can provide targeted feedback on specific writing projects, including class assignments, theses, dissertations, and personal statements. The fee for each session is $50 and will be charged to your Bursar account.
NO SHOW POLICY
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.
