Do you need help with papers, blog posts, website design, exams, or readings?
Humanities Core Peer Tutors are upperclassmen from across the university who have demonstrated excellence in writing skills, maturity, and good judgment. Tutors take a training course and meet weekly with a professional coordinator for consultation. They are happy to help with specific assignments, or provide general course help.
Peer tutoring is available during walk-in hours and by making an appointment.
Research Librarian Office Hours:
Have a research question? Want to find more information about a research topic that interests you? Visit Ask-A-Librarian to see information about drop-in hours, or to set up an appointment with Matt Roberts, your Humanities Core librarian. To set up an appointment, select: “Schedule an Appointment.” Log in, and fill out the required information. Where the system prompts: “Describe your topic field” note that you’d like to meet with Matt Roberts, or indicate that your meeting relates to Humanities Core.
Core Reading Group:
The reading group, offered by the Center for Excellence in Writing, meets biweekly for drop-in reading support sessions. Bring questions about difficult passages, concerns about using the text as evidence to support an argument, or join a discussion with other students about central themes in the text. A Writing Specialist will be available to offer reading strategies to help you push through confusion into the reward of understanding. As you understand what the text means to you, deeper levels of meaning in turn lead to a richer writing experience.
