Writing Assistance

Whether you are a beginner or highly skilled, you can improve your writing and enter the classroom or workforce with confidence by working with a writing expert at one of our five campus writing centers or our online writing lab.

Rev up your writing

Our skilled tutors can help whether you’re constructing a sentence or putting the finishing touches on a 10-page paper. Conveniently located on each campus and the South County Education Center, our writing centers help you gain confidence in writing research papers, lab reports, admissions essays for four-year universities and more. We can help you:

  • Find a topic to write about
  • Narrow your topic
  • Brainstorm ideas
  • Focus your thesis and generate support for your paper
  • Organize your thoughts on paper
  • Shape your rough draft for a particular audience
  • Develop your ideas
  • Determine grammar error patterns and learn how to fix these mistakes

Empower yourself

Our goal is to help you become a strong and independent writer. Instead of editing your papers for you, our tutors will teach you how to recognize and correct your own mistakes. We are happy to help you brush up your grammar skills and proofreading strategies, so come to our writing centers ready to learn.

Writing Resources

Remembering rules and applying them isn't always an easy task to do. Now you can access our writing resources to help keep those important rules and exceptions at your finger tips. Access the Writing Resources to review and download available resources.

No appointment, no problem

We know writer’s block doesn’t call in advance; that’s why walk-in services are offered at certain writing centers. Can't make it to campus because you're an online student? Schedule an appointment through our Online Writing Lab to receive the same level of feedback you will receive on campus. Check below to see when tutoring is available on your campus or schedule an appointment for online assistance.
