Welcome to TheWrite Spot!

Do you have a grammar question?  Would you like someone to look at your paper?  We can help!

The Academic Support Center provides free, drop-in grammar, writing, and reading assistance for all SCC students in The Write Spot writing center.  The Write Spot contains an onsite computer lab, an assortment of writing, reading, and grammar handouts, and information on accessing online English and Writing tutoring through Smarthinking.com.

Stop by whenever you have a grammar question or whenever you are struggling with a writing or reading assignment, and our assistants will help you sort it out.  We'll help you get more tools in your academic toolbox so that you can complete your work on your own.

The Write Spot
currently employs one full-time professional writing assistant and 10 peer writing assistants. Peer writing assistants are SCC students who have excelled in writing classes at SCC, have been recommended by SCC English faculty, and have been certified by the College Reading and Learning Association.  Peer assistants are uniquely qualified to help because they have recently taken many of the same clases that you are now taking.

Drop in or schedule an appointment:
Stop by anytime for a drop-in session.  Please note that during busy times, you may have to wait a few minutes for a writing assistant, so please plan for that.  You may also schedule an appointment with our professional writing assistant, Teresa Neubert, by using the information below:
