Welcome to The Write Spot.
Would you like to consult with a tutor about a writing assignment? Do you have questions about organizing ideas, citing sources, or placing commas? We can help!
Located in the Academic Support Center (B-132), The Write Spot provides free, drop-in sessions to help SCC students with any of the following topics:
- Understanding assignments
- Exploring pre-writing activities
- Locating quality research
- Outlining main points
- Synthesizing ideas
- Citing sources
- Revising for comprehension
- Editing for clarity
- Learning proofreading tactics
- Incorporating faculty feedback

While writing tutors cannot proofread your work, they will share practical techniques and help you develop your proofreading skills.
Stop by the Academic Support Center, and the writing assistants will help you increase your confidence, whether you’re just starting or finishing an assignment. Talking with a tutor can help if you’re working on a 20-page research paper or crafting a single Discussion post. We’re here to guide you on the path to achieve your goals.
During busy periods of the semester, you may have to wait before meeting with a writing consultant. Please plan accordingly.
