Reserving an Appointment


We are currently closed!

We will reopen June 3.



You are always welcome to make an appointment, but if we seem to be booked, please visit us anyway! We always have one or more tutors waiting to see visitors without appointments.

It's first come, first serve, so be early and get work done while you wait! 

This I Believe Showcase

We are very proud to feature our winners of the AY18/19 This I Believe Showcase:

Did you know? We take walk-ins. The schedule may reflect that we are booked, but we always keep a few tutors reserved to see our walk-ins. Feel free to drop by. We can't wait to see what you are working on!

Have questions about your writing? Want to talk to someone about an assignment? Want assistance brainstorming, planning, drafting or revising your work? Please make an appointment by using our online system, calling our front desk, or visiting us in KEL 1103. We look forward to working with you!

If you currently have an appointment and cannot make the session, please cancel through the online system or call our front desk at (760) 750-4168.
