History Writing Tutors

About Us:

Hi there! We are here to help students write a thesis statement and to give general advice about organizing a paper for any history class .

  • We expect all 100-level students to have read all of the assigned material before receiving tutoring for a thesis. 
  • Students that come prepared with three thought-out topics for their body paragraphs can often be helped twice as fast.
  • ***The best time to come in is after reading all of your materials, but before you start writing your paper.


Making an Appointment: 

Please visit our sign-up sheet online: Sign Up Here.

You can now indicate a preference for your appointment: in-person or online. We will do our best to accommodate your preference, but please note that in-person appointments are subject to change to online if in-person tutors are not available at your scheduled time. Please make sure to include all requested information so that the sign-up process can go as smoothly as possible. Our tutors will reach out via email to confirm your appointment and send you the meeting link, should you choose the online option.

*IMPORTANT* You need to sign up anytime before 5pm the day before your desired appointment. i.e. If you want to be tutored on Thursday at 5:30pm, you must sign up before 5pm on Wednesday.

Earlier sign-ups are always appreciated!!!
