How Appointments Work

Face-to-Face Appointments

All three sites offer 50 minute conferences by appointment, beginning on the hour. Appointments should be made in advance on-line. If you are more than 10 minutes late for your scheduled appointment, your session may be given to someone else.

Online Appointments

Online appointments function just like face-to-face appointments but through a computer. You will log into the online appointment software (click on your appointment in the calendar and click "join online appointment") and you and your consultant will be able to chat in real time and view a shared document. Please have any writing ready to upload in case you'd like to share it with your consultant. Please do not upload a document in advance of your online session.

ETutor Appointments

Asynchronous online appointments, or ETutors, are only available to DKU students or athletes on the road or other students traveling on Duke business. 

TWP Writing Studio Appointment Policies

Due to our desire to serve as many students as possible, the TWP Writing Studio limits the number of appointments writers can have on the same piece of writing. 

Once you have asked consultants to work with you on the same piece three times, you will be advised that you have reached the limit and requested not to schedule another appointment on the same piece. Consultants are, of course, happy to work with you on other writing--with this policy in mind.

Dissertating writers are welcome to visit more than three times for the dissertation as a whole. You and your consultant will make a plan for the number of appointments that are appropriate for each section or chapter.
