NEW FORMS AVAILABLE FALL 2008 SCHEDULE

 

The Writing Center provides assistance to all LATTC students interested in improving their writing skills. In the form of one-on-one peer tutoring, students receive guidance in all stages of the writing process from topic selection to final proofreading and editing.

 

General Information

If a student is referred the Writing Center for assistance, the student should bring a copy of his or her assignment. Students should have paper, pens, disks, and other supplies when using the Writing Center. Writing Center tutors assist students most effectively when they come early and not wait until the last minute. The Writing Center tutors are devoted to doing the best possible job within the limits of their time and the resources available. However, utilizing these services does not guarantee grade increases.

 

Philosophy

A central goal of the Writing Center is to assist students with the writing process than to serve as editors. Typically, students will be asked to describe their assignment and topic and provide a draft of their paper.

 

The Writing Center tutors attempt to create a positive environment for learning. They work one-on-one with each student to develop his or her own ideas without taking control of the assignment. Tutors help with overall critical thinking, organization, and general writing mechanics.

 

Writing Center tutoring is free to all LATTC students. The Writing Center hours are Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Friday 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in C-100. For more information, please call (213) 763-3797.
