Appointments made in advance are recommended, although walk-in appointments are possible if a tutor is available. Appointments can be scheduled over the phone (513-745-2875) or in person and are most productive if set for several days before the piece of writing is due. Each tutoring session can last up to 50 minutes. All appointments on Monday, Wednesday and Friday are scheduled on the hour (beginning at 9:00 a.m.) ; on Tuesday and Thursday, appointments are scheduled on the half hour (beginning at 9:30 a.m.). Tutoring sessions on Sunday begin at the top of the hour (beginning at 1:00 p.m.). .This variation in the schedule is to allow our student staff to integrate their tutoring work around their own class schedules.
Please provide at least twenty-four hour notification when canceling appointments.
Computer use or use of the style manuals and other resources does not require an appointment.
Tutorial sessions are most productive when the writer comes to the Center at least a few days before an assignment is due. If you come in only an hour before a paper is due, or even the night before, you may limit the kind of assistance a tutor can offer. Rest assured, though, tutors will always do their best to help you produce your best quality work.
In order to serve the entire Xavier community, we ask that tutoring sessions for any person are limited to one per day and three per week.
Your tutoring session will be most productive if you come prepared! This starts with bringing the details of the assignment, the title of the course and the name of your professor. You will also want to have the necessary texts, notes, drafts, assignment handouts and--most importantly--your specific questions for the tutor.
