NWACC students may make a 15 minute appointment for a live tutoring session on Wednesdays from 1:00-3:00 and Thursdays 12:00-1:00.  This option is perfect for students who like the help received from a face-to-face tutoring session but cannot visit the Center.  Please see the website on how to book an appointment and get connected.

NWACC students may send their work via email for help from an instructor. To use this option, select the Email Consultation link on this page's lefthand menu.. Follow directions for submission. Students will receive a response within forty-eight hours.

On the main campus we offer three one-hour workshops a week focusing on basic skills in grammar, punctuation, and writing.  The schedule is shown on this website at the lefthand column's link to Writing Workshops. Workshop handouts are digitally accessible on the workshop schedule page.

We also offer multiple web links to resources such as Documentation Guides for MLA, APA, Chicago, CSE, ASA, and I-Search Papers; an English Handbook for grammar, punctuation, and writing information; a page on how to write quotations, and many videos and grammar exercises. For one page with links to all of these, select the Resources for Writers link on the lefthand home page menu.


The Writing Center at NWACC is an integral part of the composition program.  Writing Center faculty offer their expertise to respond to writers individually during the writing process.  We strive to develop in the writer the ability to recognize good writing, utilize research techniques, and avoid plagiarism in his/her writing.

Our instructors will read and respond to writing, offer suggestions for improving student drafts, and encourage all to become better writers in a twenty to twenty-five minute tutoring session.

Our instructors will not proofread or "fix" writing, write papers for students, or tell a student what grade a paper should receive.   If students need additional help on an assignment, they are encouraged to return to the Writing Center for further tutoring sessions.
