Make a Tutoring Appointment
Appointments are open to all officer, enlisted, and civilian personnel enrolled in a resident Air University school or center. We welcome you to make an appointment at any stage of your process, whether you’re brainstorming ideas or revising a final draft or project.
Drop-in hours are ideal for quick questions or a brief review of a section of a paper—no appointment needed!
AY24 hours TBA
What to Expect
Dialogue: You'll discuss your assignment with your tutor.
Feedback: Your tutor will respond to your writing and address your concerns or questions.
Strategies & tools: Your tutor will provide resources, as needed, that you can use now and in your future writing.
NO direct editing: Our mission is to strengthen your skills as a writer and communicator, so we will not edit or proofread your paper for you.
