How We Can Help Your Students

 

    The Campus Writing Center offers an array of services that support your efforts as an instructor. Here are some ways we can help your students learn to improve and polish their writing:

  • In-Center Class Visits:  Bring your entire class to visit the Campus Writing Center!
     
  • Classroom Presentations: A Writing Center tutor can visit your classroom and describe our services.
     
  • Tutoring Sessions: One-on-one tutoring sessions in the Campus Writing Center are our most popular and beneficial service for students. These free, 50-minute sessions are available to all QCC students, regardless of which discipline the writing is for. Highly trained tutors will sit with your students to provide feedback and assistance at any stage of the writing process, from brainstorming to reviewing a full draft.

    Rest assured that we work with your students, and will not do the work for them. Therefore, we will never simply proofread or correct an assignment. Instead, we use a student-centered approach to enhance students’ skills and confidence as writers. You will receive a progress log through interoffice mail shortly after your student visits; this log will note which topics and skills were covered in the session.

    Students can schedule tutoring sessions up to a week in advance, or they can walk in and request a session any time the Writing Center is open. They can even upload a paper draft to our iPASS system and get feedback from an e-tutor. More information about tutoring services is available here.
     
  • Refer a Student for Tutoring:  You can refer a student to work with a tutor at the Campus Writing Center using our Faculty Referral Form on this link.
     
  • Grammar Workshops for Students, Faculty, and Staff. 
     
  • These presentations  give an overview of our faculty services and student-centered approach to tutoring (coming soon).
