Writing Center Hours

Get FREE help with essays, research papers, and other college writing assignments during the spring semester by emailing writingcenter@jwcc.edu!

The Writing Center is open for Summer Semester on Monday, June 7, 2021.

Virtual tutoring continues for the Writing Center. In-person meetings are not available for Summer Semester.

A Zoom appointment is not required to get help. The tutor can work with you over email.

We offer help two ways: By email and by Zoom video conference.

Students may submit their papers by email to the tutor or fill out the form and schedule tutoring session.

Please wait for an email response from the tutor to confirm your appointment request.

Note: The Writing Center cubicle B122 is still being used for test proctoring.

How it Works

Note: A Zoom appointment is not required to get help. The tutor can work with you over email. 

The writing center is open to provide asynchronous (not at the exact same time as submission) tutoring by emailing writingcenter@jwcc.edu. Alternatively, if you wish to interact directly with a tutor over a Zoom call, fill out the appointment request form on this page.

Note: In-person meetings are not available for Summer Semester.

Attach copies of your paper (Word, Google Docs, any text-based format) to your email. Provide relevant information about the type of writing assignment it is and criteria from your instructor; include rubrics if you have them. Please give specific details or questions about the help you need.

The Writing Center is staffed by one tutor. Wait for an email response from the tutor to confirm your appointment request. You should expect a response to your submission within 24 hours. 

Your paper will be reviewed in the order that it was received.

Questions? Contact the writing center.

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.​ We will help you with specific problems and questions about your writing, research, and documentation.​
