This is a popular resource and slots fill quickly!  You may schedule as many tutoring consultations as you need—please be responsible and considerate.   Please cancel your appointments online at least 4 hours in advance in order to make the time available for other students and avoid a “No Show” appointment.  If you have a last minute emergency, please email the tutor directly and explain.  Irresponsible use of the resources may result in losing your privileges.
