Lacerte Family Writing & Academic Resource Center


Scheduling an Appointment

We generally schedule appointments in one-hour blocks.

Writing appointments are most successful when made in advance of the paper's due date. This allows time for revisions and review of a second draft, if the student chooses. For writing appointments, tutors and students typically read and discuss a 5–7 page paper. Longer papers may require scheduling a longer appointment.

During busy times in the semester, we maintain a waiting list and contact students for canceled appointments on a first-come, first-served basis. Students should call the WARC if they wish to cancel an appointment, allowing other students to use the time effectively.

To make an appointment, stop by the WARC at 216 Tremont Street, 5th Floor or call 617-824-7874.
