The tutors are available for walk-ins, but we get very busy! Making an appointment ensures that we will be able to devote your session time to you and your assignment!
What can we do for you?
We'll work with you on any writing project, no matter what stage of the process you're in - from the first draft to the final one. When we say any project, we mean any project, from English essays to assignments in humanities or science. We'd also be happy to help with resumes, cover letters, applications to transfer schools, and scholarship essays.
What should you bring?
If you need help starting your paper, we'll just need to know what the assignment is. Please also bring any relevant notes, an outline, or a draft if you have it.
Also bring your questions: What problems have you had on other papers? What problems are you having on this paper? Has your professor make suggestions to improve your writing? No one is born an awesome writer - every tutor knows that it takes practice, but we're here to help. Think of us as your personal trainer.
Can I write and print my essay there?
Absolutely! We have a computer lab in Nueces 118 where you can type up any paper and print it. Printing costs 10 cents per page and you're charged through the GoPrint system. If you don't have an account, you'll need to set one up with a credit or debit card.
If I can't come in for a one-on-one tutoring session, are there other options?
In addition to one-on-one tutoring, we offer workshops to help you improve your writing! We focus on core concepts for our reoccuring, monthly workshops. In addition, we offer workshops that correspond to the curriculum issued by PAC's English department. We review the most important topics, then practice them with the students. Workshops last about an hour. Look to our workshops page or come by for more information!
