Buddy sessions typically last 60 minutes and are student-centered. That means that you and your buddy will choose what you would like to accomplish in the appointment — just let us know what you would like to focus on. Buddy appointments work best if you bring a buddy with a similar situation as yours; similar prompt, similar stage in the writing process, and similar writing concerns/questions.
During a session, you can expect the consultant to begin with your prompt and some questions to better understand the assignment. Students often request to work on development, organization, analysis, format, and grammar.
