Want to turn that C paper into an A+ paper? Look no further than the Salt Lake Community College Writing Center. There are tutors and staff who are trained and ready to assist students with their writing assignment.
The Student Writing Center at SLCC is improving and helping its undergraduate students become better writers in their academic writing assignments. They give students tips on organizing papers and demystifying APA and MLA formats.
According to Clinton Gardner, the Student Writing Center coordinator, the writing center was started in 1991 by the SLCC English Department. The SLCC faculty started the SLCC Writing Center to provide one-to-one feedback to SLCC student writers.
At the start of the writing center, the program was run only by the SLCC staff. Two years later, the staff decided to add peer writing tutors to writing centers.
“To be a tutor here at the writing center you have to complete the English 1010 course and attend the training program for the peer tutors to prepare the peer to give feedback to their fellow students,” Gardner points out. The writing center works with anywhere from 1,000 to 2,000 students annually.
Anytime students need help with a writing assignment, they can drop in at any of the writing centers or schedule an appointment to see tutor by at the writing center website. If students are interested with helping fellow students with their writing assignments, they need to complete English 1010 and attend the tutor training.
Writing centers can be found at the Taylorsville, Miller, Jordan and South City campuses. The staff and the tutors can be reached by dropping in or scheduling an appointment either in person or online.
