Language and Writing Center: Scheduling an Appointment:

Peer writing tutors at CTS

4 Steps to Scheduling


  1. Identify the specific tutor you want to work with. If you’re not sure who would be a good fit, email the Language and Writing Center Coordinator directly and they will subsequently match you.
  2. Clearly state what you’re seeking help with: the type of assignment (short assignment, final paper, sermon, presentation, conference paper, etc), the course it is for, the assignment instructions for the course provided by the professor (if possible), and your preference for meeting in person or digitally.
  3. Be considerate about timing:
    1. If you want to meet with a tutor face-to-face, schedule at least three days to a week out.  All of the Language and Writing Center staff are CTS graduate students with existing commitments including and beyond the LWC. Trying to schedule a face to face appointment at the last minute is difficult for all parties involved and less likely to happen. Scheduling well in advance will give you and your tutor enough time to make it work.
    2. If you’re interested in editing help or feedback on an assignment, send what you want to the tutor of your choice. Attached said material to the email that details what you need help with.
    3. Submit requests a minimum of 3 days before the assignment is due. Assignments emailed at the last minute (as in the same day it's due or the night before) will be answered on a case by case basis as they are received. 
  4. Inhale! Exhale! It will be okay!
