From John Troynaski, Director, Writing Center:
The Writing Center continues to provide support for student writing at Queens College. Individual, in-person tutoring will be available during the semester:
Monday-Thursday: 10 am-2 pm and 3-8 pm
Friday: 10 am-1 pm
Saturday: 10 am-2 pm
The Writing Center is located in Kiely Hall, Room 229 and can be reached at 718-997-5676.
Actual tutoring begins on September 12, but students should apply for “standing” weekly appointments as soon as possible because the Center follows a first-come, first-served policy. As in the past, students who can’t get (or don’t want) standing weekly appointments can call 718-997-5676 to schedule a one-hour “drop-in” session for work on a specific assignment or a specific problem, or they can “walk in“ and hope that a tutor is available.
Students may also submit work online via our e-tutoring option, available 24/7, which begins September 6. To find out more about this service, as well as the Writing Center’s philosophy, policies, and procedures, you can go to the Center’s website, http://writingatqueens.qc.cuny.edu/the-writing-center/. The website can also be found by clicking Quick Links on the college’s homepage, then clicking Writing at Queens on the menu that drops down. Once there, click on The Writing Center under Related Links.
Please announce the above information to your classes or to individuals who may need further help with their writing.
Finally, if at the beginning of the semester you want to bring your class to the Writing Center for a brief (10-15 minute) introduction/tour, or you’d like someone from the Center to visit your class to introduce your students to the Center’s activities, you can call me at the number listed above.
