Then, under Success Network, scroll to the bottom of the screen and you’ll see a box for Writing and
Humanities Tutoring.

If you click on it, then you'll see a list of Tutors (called Team Members).
On your left, there’s a link that says Schedule Appointment.

If you click on Schedule Appointment, you’ll see a calendar and a list of tutors and the times available to make an appointment on the day highlighted on the calendar.  

Once you choose a time and a tutor, click continue on the bottom of the screen to continue making your appointment.

Please note that in order to allow every student at SMC a chance to use our services, we ask that students only book a maximum of 1-hour appointment per day, and three appointments maximum per week. Thank you for your consideration!
