If you are running late, call the CAE at 603-641-4113. If you arrive more than 15 minutes late without notice, your appointment is considered missed and the tutor will not be available.

Cancellations made less than three hours before the start of a scheduled appointment are considered missed. Future appointments must be made in person on a probationary basis at the CAE desk.

Although professional staff are happy to review subject specific questions with current students for graduate school preparation, the CAE is not able to support preparation for standardized exams such as the GRE, MCAT, or GMAT.

First, attempt your homework and write your thoughts down. Notice what questions arise and/or what topics are challenging. Bring whatever you have: a draft, an idea, a concept, a partial problem – most importantly, bring your questions.

Ultimately, you are responsible for your completed and submitted work. Tutors can assist with homework and assignments, but it is unethical for them to do work for students. If you are unsure about your instructor’s expectations, it is your responsibility to speak with the instructor directly.

Writing tutors/research mentors focus on helping you learn how to improve your own writing skills, including research, development, organization, grammar, and documenting sources. As a result, they do not edit or proofread papers or read papers in advance of one-on-one tutorials.

If writing tutors find evidence of plagiarism, they will point it out and suggest ways to avoid it; however, students are responsible for appropriate documentation of sources.

No. We do not provide exam proctoring for other institutions, online courses, or certifications.
