Writing Center

Feedback on Your Writing

Every writer needs a reader, so come to the Writing Center for feedback at any point in your writing process. For example, visit us when you're developing a focus, organizing ideas, expanding ideas, revising for grammar and punctuation or citing sources. We'll provide feedback on writing from any CLC class!

Tutoring

One-on-one tutoring is free and available to all CLC students. You may bring in a writing or speech assignment from any class; if you’re getting ready to transfer, you may also have someone look at your college application essay. Our tutors will not take over your paper, but will provide feedback to help you make improvements.

Online Writing Support

Writing tutoring is currently available in an online format to support all students enrolled in any writing course. 

We offer two different options for online tutoring:

  • Asynchronous option where writers share their paper and assignment sheet, and tutors respond with comments sent back to the writer in an email and/or Google Docs. No appointment is necessary for this option, and tutors respond within 72 hours, usually sooner.
  • Synchronous option where writers schedule an appointment to meet with their tutor in Zoom for a video conference or in Google Docs for a text chat. 

To request online tutoring, please complete the Online Writing Center Support Request Form. For additional information, contact our Online Writing Center staff directly by sending an email to LTAS.OnlineWC@clcillinois.edu.
