New for Spring 2021: Virtual tutoring sessions available for students in online courses or in quarantine.    Visit TutorTrac (https://tutortrac.gcc.edu/TracWeb40/Default.html) to sign up for a virtual tutoring session.  Use typical GCC credentials. MUST schedule at least 24 hours ahead of time and must cancel 24 hours ahead of time.  Students under age 18 wishing to sign up for a tutoring session should schedule with Noel Elvin (4-5 on Tuesdays & 4-8 on Thursdays).

To make the best use of the Writing Center services, please come several days before your assignment is due. This will give you the opportunity to revise and edit your paper on your own.

If possible, please bring a copy of the assignment instructions or your course syllabus that describes the assignment.    You can bring a printed version of your document or bring it on your tablet/laptop.

Please note that the Writing Center is not an editing service.   Rather, we discuss your writing questions, issues, and concerns, and we offer you strategies for revising and editing your paper on your own. When you come, expect to work interactively with the staff members on your document. After all, it is your paper, and you should be working on it.
