Appointment FAQs


What should I expect in a tutoring session? How should I prepare? 

-Check out our tutee responsibilities and expectations!  


What is the schedule for 1-1 appointments?

-Our tutors set their own availability, so check Passport Navigate to see when our tutors are available. If you are having trouble finding a time that works with your schedule, please contact Erika

-Appointments must be booked 12 hours in advance. Same-day appointments are only available for established tutees and are dependent on tutor availability. 

-Some of our tutors are available on the weekends. But, if you want to make a weekend appointment please book by Friday evening, so that our tutors can plan accordingly! 


What if my class requires tutoring, or I get extra credit? 

Do you get extra credit for attending tutoring? Does your professor require you to attend tutoring? Fill out this form to have a proof of appointment emailed directly to your professor: Proof of Appointment Form 


Will a writing tutor proofread my paper? 

Writing tutors will provide cadets helpful suggestions to conceptualize, draft, and revise
content to meet stated expectations of their essay and other writing assignments.
 To maintain cadets' ownership of ideas, writing tutors will not proofread/edit
cadets' writing or produce writing on their cadets' behalf or guarantee grades.


How many tutoring appointments can I have? 

There is a 2 appointment per subject, per week limit. This rule is in place is to allow enough space in the schedule for all students to have the opportunity to receive tutoring. If you find this limit difficult, you may provide a recommendation from a professor or disability services to receive more per-week appointments.
