Tips we’ve learned:

• It’s been advised that if you have a long paper, you should email the document before your appointment so your peer tutor can review it earlier.

• If you don’t have an appointment, you can still drop in and meet with a tutor as long as no one is signed up for that time.

• Check out their Blog for Helpful Writing Tips and Advice for Mills students.

• You can also read our article on the Writing Center last Fall.
