Writing Center services, hours, and online tutoring
Writing Center Services
The tutors in the Writing Center can help you with planning, organizing, drafting, and revising papers and reports. The Writing Center can also help with resumés, scholarship letters, and other writing projects not associated with a specific class. It's a relaxed one-on-one session with an instructor or peer tutor.
Writing Center Location and Hours
The Writing Center is located in the Don C. Locke Library, Room 125 (#6 on the campus map).
For the Fall 2019 semester, the Writing Center is open Monday–Friday from 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. and in the evenings on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m.
To schedule an individual on-campus, remote, or RISE tutoring session, please schedule an appointment online at the Writing Center’s calendar or by calling (828) 398-7218. More information about these services can be found in the Writing Center Brochure and at the following link: Writing Center Services.
Currently there are no formalized drop-in hours. Students are welcome to try to conduct a walk-in appointment, but we may not be able to accommodate it depending on demand on a given day.
Writing Center Online
You can also get online help from the Writing Center and communicate with a writing tutor by email. This online service is for students enrolled in online or hybrid (O or Y section) courses. More information can be found on our website. From the abtech.edu homepage, scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Writing Center" under the "Academics" heading, then select "Writing Center Services" to the left of the page.
Online sessions are available 24/7, except on student and College holidays.
Academic Learning Center
If you need help with basic English skills (grammar, usage, punctuation, and sentence structure), then you'll want to see the Academic Learning Center (ALC), which is located in Ferguson 114. The ALC tutors can help you to improve your sentence skills and other fundamentals of clear writing.
If you have additional questions, email email@example.com.
