Visit the Online English Writing Center & ESL Lab

Online tutoring is available for ALL students enrolled in any English or ESL class. The only requirement is that the English or ESL student must be enrolled in one of the following lab classes: Tutoring 001, English 67, English 68, or English 108.

Students already enrolled in one of these lab classes can visit the Canvas site associated with their lab class to find detailed information about how to take advantage of online tutoring and other Writing Center services.

English and ESL students who are not currently enrolled in one of these lab classes can still enroll in Tutoring 001 at any time during this semester through the SIS portal. Tutoring 001 is zero units and, therefore, is free to add.
