Welcome to LFCC’s Writing Center
Writing at the college level can be difficult for anyone at any point of the writing process. LFCC students can now receive FREE assistance with writing assignments Monday through Friday, throughout the entire semester via the Writing Center.
Students should feel free to stop by any time during our business hours and speak with our English tutors to receive feedback on written assignments. Both the walk-in sessions and the online paper submission allow students to receive assistance with grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, citations, etc.
Please come prepared with questions for our tutors that will help you focus on the issues that you are struggling with and would like to learn. Our goal is to help students achieve success and become effective and independent writers. Come see how we can help you!
Why do I need English?
When was the last time that you wrote something? Perhaps it was for a class or for an employer. But is that the only “writing” you have done? Have you sent an email, a memo, or posted to Twitter? We write every day—it is an integral part of our society. This non-verbal communication, or representation of ourselves, speaks volumes about us. In a recent study, prospective employers stated that they would not hire candidates with poor written communication skills. These businesses did not want poor representation.
Not only will continued writing practice improve your non-verbal communication, increasing your chances of earning the job you hope for, it will allow you to express yourself in various ways, effectively conveying multiple emotions and messages.
How Does It Work?
A qualified English tutor will assist you with your writing questions when you walk in during any of our tutoring hours. To see the most current tutor schedule, please visit www.lfcc.edu/tutor and click on walk-in tutoring schedule.
In order to receive the best learning experience, you should come prepared with relevant books, paper & pencil and your paper already printed.
Online Paper Feedback
Papers submitted after 3:00 pm on Monday, November 19, 2018 may not be reviewed until Monday, November 26, 2018 due to Tutoring Center Closure for the holiday.
The reviewing tutor will spend approximately 30 minutes on each paper. Responses will be returned via email within 2 business days. Business days are Monday – Friday.
