Why schedule a consultation?
We can help you with all phases of your communication-related assignment or event. Whether you need help with a speech, research, interviewing for a job, brainstorming, speech anxiety, confidence, exams, MREST or anything else - we are here to help you. An appointment gives you the opportunity to work face to face with some of the best communication tutors in the country. We have worked with everyone from students to staff and faculty. You don't have to be in GCOM or a Communication Studies major to receive communication help.
Where/when do I go for my consultation?
All appointments take place in the Communication Center, located in room 1155 on the first floor of the Student Success Center. Appointments are available in 30 minute or 1 hour blocks during our open hours, posted below. If you need help outside of the hours, please contact Paul Mabrey.

What should I do to prepare for my consultation?
For your appointment, come with an idea of how you would like to receive help. If you are preparing a speech, tell us about your audience, the situation and where you are in the process. Don't be afraid to bring in your assignment explanation or any work you have done to this point. If you are getting ready for a job interview, bring in the job posting.
What does a consultation look like?
Each appointment is different and will be tailored to you and/or your group needs. We begin by listening to what you need. Once we have a sense of what you are working on, we collaborate with you to accomplish your communication goals in a comfortable and safe environment. We can help brainstorm, research, outline and organize a speech. We can watch, record and provide feedback for your presentation. We can help you with tough communication concepts or information literacy skills for your GCOM exam or MREST. We can help you prepare and practice for a job interview.
