The entire writing lab: They were an absolute pleasure to work with.
I worked with all of them at least once this semester and they were all incredible and (made) English fun.
We currently work one-on-one or online with any MATC student who needs help with the following:
• Understanding the steps of the writing process
• Practicing prewriting techniques
• Building an outline
• Doing research
• Developing a thesis statement
• Constructing a logical argument
• Improving proofreading and editing skills
• Analyzing literature
• Using updated MLA/APA/Chicago style documentation
• Building sentence skills
• Using Internet resources such as the Online Writing Lab (OWL)
• Refining scholarship essays
However, we do not:
• Assist with quizzes, take-home exams, or tests
• 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 suggestions for how we might better serve your students. We are located in room C270 at the downtown campus.
If you have any other questions, please call 297-8189 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
