Writing Center

The Writing Center offers individual tutoring, group workshops, and a resource library.

Due to COVID-19, the Writing Center will conduct tutoring sessions entirely online through videoconferencing (Zoom) or email. However, a tutor will be present (during Fall 2020 semester) inside the writing center to help students adapt to online tutoring and to provide writing center resources, such as writing/grammar handouts and books.

HOW TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT

To make a Zoom appointment with a writing center tutor, please email the writing center – writingcenter@chc.edu – and include the following information:

-The date/time you would like to meet

-The name of the class and professor’s name associated with your assignment

-A brief description of your assignment and what you would like to focus on

-Please attach to your email a draft of your paper or essay

To utilize email tutoring, please attach your paper or essay and include name of class, professor's name, and questions to writingcenter@chc.edu. Tutors typically respond within 48 hours.

If you need immediate help or would like clarification on how to access the writing center’s services, please call 215-248-7114 (Fall 2020 only) or email us.

We also encourage students to follow us on Twitter (@writingCHC) and Instagram (@CHC_Writing_Center) for the latest news and updates.
