How to Prepare for an Appointment

  • Review our Policies and Locations pages to make sure you book the right appointment for you.

  • Visit If you have never booked an appointment before, please register to create an account.
  • Log into the appointment page. At the top, center of the page, you'll find a drop-down menu to change the locations offered. Please book an available appointment (a white block of time) and fill out the appointment questionnaire.

  • Show up a few minutes early so that we can begin the appointment on time (and turn off your cell phone, of course).

  • Bring your notes or draft and a copy of the assignment sheet. If your draft is on a laptop, that is fine.

  • If you have specific questions or concerns about your work, write them down before your appointment.

  • Remember, consultants don't proofread entire papers—but they are very good at helping you learn to produce stronger writing.
