For the 2021 fall semester, the Westchester writing center will offer virtual and in-person synchronous sessions in which the tutor and tutee work together on a document in real time.

The Writing Center is physically located in Room 202, on the second floor (Clep test center).

Online sessions can occur via email, over the phone, via Zoom, FaceTime, or Google Hangouts - whichever is best for the tutee. Once you have sent an email requesting an appointment, a tutor will contact you to confirm your appointment and to provide additional instructions. You will need to email a copy of your essay prior to the session.

If you cannot attend your session, please email to cancel your appointment.

Please be on time. If you are not here at your appointed time, your session may be given to someone else or simply cancelled.
