ACE offers tutoring appointments for Improving English for Academic Purposes, Mathematics, Reading Comprehension and Writing. We also offer a limited number of on-line tutoring appointments. Currently, appointments for on-line tutoring are available for Accounting, Chemistry, Math, Spanish, and Writing. Information about the on-line tutoring program, is available here.
All ACE tutoring appointments can be booked on-line via MyWings. Follow the instructions below to make an appointment.
If you have any questions, please contact ACE at email@example.com or call us at (904) 620-1012.
Students may book up to one hour of appointment-based tutoring, either face-to-face or online, per day. This time can be in the form of one hour-long appointment or two 30-minute-long appointments. Students with lengthy or complex assignments may want to book appointments for adjacent days (e.g. one hour on Monday and one hour on Tuesday) in order to cover all of their material in a timely manner.
ACE limits the number of appointments that students can book per day for two reasons:
Students can make
One thirty-minute appointment is ideal to address issues in one short (under six pages) assignment. For a single assignment that is over six pages, an hour appointment, or two thirty minute appointments, is recommended.
Tutors will only review one paper per appointment.
Students working as a group on a class writing project must call the ACE ahead to alert us of their special circumstances; groups working on a writing project should make an hour appointment and all group members must be present at the appointment.
Writing tutoring appointments allow the student and tutor a specific time to work together to identify areas for improvement, addressing primary issues like large-scale structure first, then moving on to grammar and mechanics as necessary. Students are able to revise their assignment between tutoring appointments to address the issues that they and the tutor discussed. At the next tutoring appointment, students will work with a tutor to evaluate the revised paper and to discuss any remaining concerns.
Students can make one online tutoring appointment per day per subject area--see policy on total number of tutoring appointments, above. Click here for more information about online tutoring.
Tutoring appointments provide the opportunity for students to meet one-on-one with an ACE tutor or coordinator of instructional support for focused and intensive assistance. Due to the limited availability and high demand for these appointments, there are often students waiting to book appointments that other students cancel. A student who misses an appointment without giving sufficient cancelation notice prevents another student from taking advantage of that empty time slot- and from receiving the help needed.
To ensure that as many students as possible are able to receive tutoring assistance, ACE enforces the following appointment cancelation policy.
