Please encourage students to visit the center and take advantage of the free services provided:
- one-on-one and group tutoring
- drop-in assistance
- computer access
The center encourages students to schedule formal tutoring sessions verses dropping in for assistance. If students schedule a session, the center guarantees one-on-one assistance, without interruption. This also allows tutors to prepare for sessions, giving students well-rounded support. However, if students cannot schedule a session but need assistance, the center encourages them to drop-in for help.
The center employs six highly qualified tutors; three Level 1 tutors (first level of training) and three Level 2 tutors (second level of training and hold Level 1 certification).
Tutor sessions may be scheduled anytime by calling 275-4784.
The Writing Center Director facilitates a brief Writing Center orientation for classes. Please contact Christa to schedule an orientation either in the Writing Center or in the classroom.
