• Introduce material that students miss due to absences from classes
• Substitute for class time
• Write/edit/proofread personal correspondence, business or legal documents, or homework from another college

Instructors: We offer Writing Skills Workshops, which are especially helpful for instructors of non-English courses who assign papers. For example, "WS-4: Where do I begin? Preparing a First Draft" can help History students get started in the writing process, and "WS-8: To Cite or Not to Cite? APA Documentation Made Easy" can help Psychology students properly format their papers.
