Tutoring & Writing Center

About the Tutoring & Writing Center

The Tutoring & Writing Center, located on the second floor of the Diane M. Halle Library (Room 204), has professional and peer tutors representing a variety of disciplines and backgrounds. Certified by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA), the Tutoring & Writing Center helps students prepare for exams, address assignments, tackle projects, brainstorm for papers, work on presentation skills, and review and reinforce material presented in class.

Both content and writing tutors do not complete homework or assignments for the student. More specifically, writing tutors do not edit or proofread work; instead, they work with students to discuss elements within written work that could be revised or reorganized. It is our goal in the Tutoring & Writing Center to collaborate with each student to increase their confidence in both their content knowledge and written communication skills.

Google Meet Instructions

We will be using Google Meet to conduct remote tutoring sessions. The decision to use Google Meet was made to continue offering you a face-to-face experience. Instructions on how to use Google Meet can be downloaded by clicking here. We also created a video tutorial, which can be seen here.

Schedule an Appointment

Appointments are free and available to all Endicott students. We encourage you to make an appointment through our online scheduling system. If you have any difficulty scheduling an appointment, please call 978-998-7735 or email tutor@endicott.edu.

Appointment Policy

In the Tutoring & Writing Center, all Endicott students may make up to three appointments with a content tutor and three appointments with a writing tutor per week. Therefore, all students can have a maximum of six hours per week with a tutor. However, students may not make more than one appointment with the same consultant on the same day.

Cancellation Policy

In order to serve as many students as possible, we request tutees cancel any appointments they cannot make immediately. To cancel an appointment, please utilize tutortrac.endicott.edu and/or call 978-998-7735 or email tutor@endicott.edu.

Recurring Appointment Policy

If a student schedules recurring appointments and misses the first tutoring session, all remaining appointments will be canceled. If a student misses and/or cancels two tutoring sessions throughout the semester, all remaining appointments will be canceled.
