Greetings,

Welcome to Summer 2020! I hope everyone is doing well! I wanted to take a moment to share information about the Writing Center’s Summer 2020 hours and services. 

The Writing Center offers tutoring services through Pisces Online Tutoring from 9-5 M-Th and workshops on Zoom from 11-12 and 3-4 M-Th.

Please see the full schedule here.

Also, I have created a closed-captioned video that highlights the various Writing Center resources available to students. The video covers the ins and outs of Pisces Online Tutoring, in addition to how students can access DLAs and Zoom tutoring/workshops. I hope you find the video beneficial, and I encourage you to check it out.
