Student Services

Consultation Sessions Across Multiple Subject Areas

  • One-on-one consultation sessions with a trained student consultant. These sessions may take place in person (at the Academic Success Center), or online, through the video chat option available through our scheduling software. Students can book appointments for help with understanding concepts and completing assignments in a variety of classes.
    • Select English courses (PENG 4-8, ENG101, ENG102, ENG112, ENG113)
    • Select mathematics courses (UPP, first and second year math)
    • Human Structure and Function courses (PHSF101 and PHSF112)
    • Chemistry
    • Physics
    • Economics
    • Electrical engineering
    • Software engineering

Writing Consultation Sessions

  • Students may also book appointments for help with writing. Writing support services aim to assist students at any phase of the writing process, including:
    • Brainstorming topic ideas
    • Organizing thoughts (outlining, reverse outlining, choosing idea sequence, etc.)
    • Developing supporting ideas
    • Conducting research on the topic
      • Finding relevant and trustworthy sources
      • Synthesizing ideas from sources
      • Citing sources properly
    • Learning strategies for revising and editing
    • Help with identifying patterns of grammatical errors and engagement directed learning activities intended to improve grammar. We recommend that students bring specific grammar questions rather than blanket questions (i.e., “Is all of the grammar in this paper correct?”). Student consultants are instructed not to edit or proofread papers, but to help writers learn how to edit and proofread their own papers.
    • Student consultants are also trained to ask questions to help students improve the paper for themselves and to offer feedback on the student’s ideas. The assignment must not be improved beyond the ability of the student-writer.
