Writing Skills Tutoring

The Learning Center works on the premise that writers develop over the entire human lifespan, and all writers from student novices to practiced professionals can benefit from conversation with and advice from other writers. We can help anyone in the college community who is interested in becoming a more competent and confident writer. 

The Center is staffed by experienced professional writing tutors; most also teach English courses. Through years of honing their abilities in classrooms and writing centers, and through ongoing professional development, our tutors have become highly adept at working with writers at all points in their growth, and at every stage of the writing process. We offer two distinct kinds of services for students: in person, one-on-one tutoring and NightWriter. Our writing tutors can help you with any kind of written assignment. We also specialize in helping our ESOL students tackle their writing work.

One-on-One

One-on-One is the time-tested, tried-and-true approach in which one student meets with one tutor, usually for one hour per week.

NightWriter

NightWriter combines technology with evening hours to provide nighttime help with writing through WCOnline.  Students have the option of chatting with a tutor live or uploading a paper for offline comments.

Students can upload a paper and chat live with a tutor Sunday through Thursday evenings, 9-11 pm.  Tutors also are available to read and comment on written assignments those evenings 11 pm to midnight.  Log in the WCOnline to learn more.
