Giving you the help you need to get the most out of your education - no matter the subject.

About the Writing & Tutoring Center

The mission of the Writing & Tutoring Center is to help you become a more successful learner, both in your classes and beyond your time at TCC. Learning is an ongoing process, and our goal here is to help you develop skills and strategies along the way.

Our focus is on the student. We strive to help you establish successful strategies, to get to know your own learning and writing process better, and to guide you through the trials and tribulations of your academic career. Learning IS a process. To improve, you must practice and be patient. Your tutor is just one stop on the path. Our goal is to take you one step forward on this journey.
