What is the Spanish Writing Center?
is a unique tutorial service whose purpose is to assist students with different
writing assignments in the Second Year Spanish language classes and
beyond. The special one-on-one contact
students receive enable them to acquire the necessary writing skills to fulfill
various assignments and to enhance English writing skills, as well.
The purpose of the Spanish Writing
Center is to focus on the
various elements that are required to write an effective essay or research
paper: content, organization, language, vocabulary and mechanics. The Writing Center
is not a correcting or
proofreading service. Students are required to actively participate during
tutorial sessions with their writing tutors, which involves arriving to each
session with specific questions or problem areas they wish to discuss. In addition to answering those questions,
tutors will go over a sample paragraphs and give further tips and advice.
Appointments at the Spanish Writing Center
are reserved for students enrolled in Third and Fourth Semester Spanish, as
well as Upper Division Spanish courses when tutoring sessions are available.
Access to the tutorial schedule and specific writing resources are provided by
the Spanish language faculty.
We hope you take full advantage
of this special service. For further questions, contact the Spanish Language
Coordinator, Karyn Schell, at email@example.com.

you are looking for. Sessions are most productive when you come with
specific questions in mind. Bring a copy of the assignment you are
working on. For easier reference to specific grammatical and usage
terms, bring the handbook used in your writing course.
