How Virtual Tutoring 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 filling out the appointment request form on this page or emailing writingcenter@jwcc.edu. Request the type of appointment you want: in-person, Zoom, or email.

In-person meetings are available for Fall 2021.

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.​
