Writing Center

The Writing Center is open to students of all levels interested in improving their writing in any discipline. Faculty offer individualized and group instruction in expository and creative writing, research and documentation, as well as grammar and usage. ESL students receive assistance in language development and learning.

In addition to the traditional tutorial session, sessions can also take place online via Zoom or through email. Students are also welcome to use the Department's PC lab for word processing and Internet research when classes are not utilizing the space. Weekly appointments and unscheduled drop-in sessions are available.

Tutoring is only available via Zoom or E-tutoring!
Tutoring begins on Monday, January 25, and continues through Friday, May 14.

  1. Because of the current closure of campus, all appointments are through synchronous Zoom or asynchronous email tutoring:

  2. You can work with a writing consultant for one scheduled appointment each week.
  3. After your initial appointment, you may schedule appointments for up to two weeks in advance. If you make appointments in advance, you can extend them each week for an additional week. This way you can work consistently with the same tutor if you so desire. Be sure to check your future appointments at the end of each appointment.
  4. Drop-in sessions (when available) are also possible if you don't have a scheduled appointment, as long as a tutor is available. Drop-in sessions work on a first-come, first-served basis. In addition, you may take advantage of our email tutoring.
  5. Cancellation Policy: If you can't keep an appointment, you must call to cancel. If you miss two appointments without canceling, you will not be permitted to make any more appointments for the remainder of the semester. You will be able to use the Center only on a drop-in basis. If you have any concerns, talk with your tutor first, then with full-time faculty if necessary.
