Tutoring

Peninsula College's Learning Center

The Learning Center is open to students at all levels and abilities working on projects for any class (including online and WAOL courses) in any discipline. We're creating better students, not just better assignments.

WRITING RESPONSE (room E-139)

Monday-Friday, 9:00am-4:00pm
Contact: Michael Mills at (360) 417-7973 or call the Writing Lab directly at (360) 417-6361.

During a 30 minute response session we will discuss your paper's strengths and weaknesses, focusing first on larger issues such as clarifying ideas, developing and supporting those ideas, structuring them for readability and coherence, and using mechanics (grammar and punctuation) for clarity. We can also help you understand an assignment's expectations and generate ideas before you begin your writing.

RESEARCH & WRITING LAB (E-139)

Monday-Friday, 9:00am-4:00pm
Contact: Michael Mills at (360) 417-7973 or call the Writing Lab directly at (360) 417-6361.

The Research and Writing Lab is open to all students engaged in writing projects in any discipline who would like a place to work independently. The computers have Microsoft Office and internet access; a number of writing handbooks are available; and students have access to a printer.
