Meet Our Spring ’17 Art History Writing Tutors!

6 Feb

Although the Arts and Science College Learning Center has offered subject-specific assistance in the past and continues to do so in biology, chemistry, math, languages and the like, in recent years our own Department has taken the lead in providing art history-specific tutoring to its undergraduates. The program kicked off in October 2008 and, according to our students’ feedback, has proven to be a great success.

A tutor is available in the Department of Art History on Mondays through Fridays from 12.30 to 2pm. Students may see them on a walk-in basis.joyce-headshot
