Writing consultants are undergraduate students, graduate students, and professional tutors. They tutor writing in every subject, including WI courses. Their philosophy: All of us become better writers through discussing our work with other good writers.
Math consultants are undergraduate or professional tutors. Standing appointments ensure students one-on-one sessions up to twice per week. Our tutors are trained to create a judgment-free zone in the LC.
