Welcome to the English Tutoring Center

The English Tutoring Center (ETC) provides academic support to undergraduate students enrolled in English composition, reading, and English as a Second Language (ESL) courses. Students work one-on-one with Writing Coaches, learning and practicing the writing, reading, and proofreading strategies necessary for college-level writing. Students receive one unit of credit for meeting with their writing coaches weekly for one semester by enrolling in English 112, Reading and Writing Techniques. 

To be eligible for services at the ETC, you must be enrolled in an English composition, reading or ESL course (see Tutoring Services). Please check the Single-Session Writing Support schedule for current availability. For information regarding other drop-in tutoring centers on campus, please refer to the Learning Assistance Center (LAC) or the Campus Academic Resource Program (CARP). If you want to serve as a Writing Coach, please refer to Tutoring Services.
