Writing Center: How to Make an Appointment

Meet the Tutors!

Before you go to our scheduler, take a second to meet the tutors! While any tutor can help you with any project, sometimes it's nice to chat with someone who shares similar interests to you and your project. 

Making an appointment

Click the button below to go to our scheduler. First-time users will be required to create an account and log in (the log-in information is not the same as your Moodle username and password, but you can certainly make it the same so you can easily remember it).

Click on a white square that corresponds to the specific tutor, time, and day you want your appointment. Then, fill out the pop-up form and click "save." The square you chose will turn orange, showing that your appointment has been scheduled. 

You can log back in anytime and click on the orange square to view your appointment or cancel it. There are no limits to the number of cancellations or new appointments you may make.

If you wish to make a virtual appointment:

  1. Make sure you have downloaded the TEAMS App on your Woodbury email page.
  2. When you make your appointment, be sure to choose a virtual appointment through Microsoft TEAMS. You will also be able to upload your paper to the appointment form.
  3. Your tutor will set up a TEAMS meeting and send you an email invitation. Check your email for this invitation and click on the link. It will automatically open in the app, and you and the tutor will be able to have a video call while you work on your paper.
  4. The tutor will download your paper from the appointment scheduler, open it in Microsoft Word, and share their computer screen with you. This way, both you and the tutor can view the paper, make changes, highlight areas, and point to things as you discuss.
  5. NOTE: Please schedule your appointment at least 1/2 hour before your selected start time.
