How can the Writing Center help you?
The Writing Center is available to all JWCC students, free of charge, who need help with essays, research papers, and other college writing assignments. Our staff can help you at any stage of the process: choosing and focusing a topic, planning and researching, note taking, formatting in MLA or APA, drafting, and revising. The Writing Center does not provide proofreading services. We are here to work with you one-on-one to provide the personal attention you need and to help you improve your writing skills.
NOTE: We are not proofreaders. You may not drop off papers. We are here to work with you in person.
WHAT TO BRING TO YOUR APPOINTMENT: Please be prepared to meet with the tutor. Bring a printout of your paper, a pen or pencil, the assignment description or rubric, your text book, your notes or outline, and any research materials you plan to use as sources. If you do not have a paper copy of your document, you may bring in the file on a flash drive. You may also save your documents onto your student account OneDrive.
Smarthinking is a free online tutoring resource available to all JWCC students. Get 24/7 help on a wide variety of subjects, including math, writing, science, nursing, and much more! You can access most subjects for a drop-in tutoring session at any time, and you can also schedule tutoring appointments if you like to plan ahead.
An online writing center is also available to review your essays, help with spelling/grammar, and even look over cover letters/résumés in preparation for the working world. Smarthinking is an excellent resource for students who would have difficulty meeting standard tutoring hours.
