After each session, the tutor sends a Writing Lab Report to the professor who assigned the essay, summarizing the session and suggestions. The Writing Lab is open Sunday through Friday, with appointments available as early as 10:00 a.m. and as late as 10:30 p.m. A tutoring session may be reserved by signing up for an appointment outside the Lab in Braniff 304.
