We're Here to Help

We currently work one-on-one or online with any MATC student who needs assistance with the following: 

•    Understanding the steps of the writing process 
•    Practicing prewriting techniques
•    Building an outline
•    Conducting research
•    Developing a thesis statement
•    Constructing a logical argument
•    Improving proofreading and editing skills
•    Analyzing literature
•    Using updated MLA/APA style documentation
•    Building sentence skills
•    Using Internet resources such as the Online Writing Lab (OWL)

However, we do not:

•    Assist with quizzes, take-home exams, or tests
•    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  

We look forward to working with you in the coming year, and we welcome any suggestions regarding how we might better serve your students. We are located in room C270 at the downtown campus.  Our hours are 7:45 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and  7:45 a.m. to 4:00 on Fridays.

Workshops on Request

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.
