The Writing & Tutoring Center at TCC is dedicated to your success.

We are here to support your academic success by providing you with tutoring services that supplement your classroom instruction and lead you into a lifetime of successful learning.

We tutor students in all subjects from all disciplines.

What does a Writing & Tutoring Center Tutor Do?

  • Create and maintain a respectful, supportive and constructive learning environment
  • Ask you questions about the project or academic subject you are working on to clarify the instructor's assignment
  • Provide you with feedback on your work, as well as strategies for improving your understanding, study techniques, and writing skills
  • Help you focus on the most important aspects of your writing assignments (such as purpose, thesis, organization, support, etc.), as well as help you identify grammatical errors
  • Admit when we don't have the answers, but work hard to help you find them
  • Help you find the best tutor for your needs

From the Tutor's Credo:

"We are patient and supportive. We understand that learning can be a struggle. We acknowledge that our role is to create an un-intimidating, safe environment where learning is a positive experience. We Value Learning: Our purpose is to help students feel encouraged about learning. We are ALL here to learn with each other."
