The Writing Lab is a place where students can receive targeted help with any writing they have to do. This includes
The Lab is also available to students who just need a quiet place to write or to study.
All students are welcome to use the Writing Lab - science majors, history majors, education majors, CTE majors, even those students who havenâ€™t declared a major yet! No appointments are necessary.
Visit us at our Ontario location (Barber Hall 105) or at our Caldwell location.
We currently do not offer an online Writing Lab.
How Does the Writing Lab Work?
Once you have a writing assignment that you could use some help with, simply come down to BH-105. The instructor on duty will help you check in to the Writing Lab so your class instructor has a record of your visit. You will need to know your Student ID # to check in.
Our goal is to help you develop your independent writing skills. The English instructors who work in the Writing Lab are here to support you as you write. This means that during your visit, the instructors will work alongside you to help you find solutions to your own questions. When you come to the Lab, bring all of your ideas, written drafts, assignment guidelines, and questions, and be prepared to work!
The Lab instructors will do their best to answer any questions that you have, but specifically our writing instructors can help you
We even have a stash of handouts about citation, writing genres, and grammar should you need a more detailed refresher. Lab instructors can also help you find other resources that we donâ€™t have already.
The Writing Lab follows all TVCC campus policies. We ask that students refrain from bringing children or non-service animals to the Lab, talking on their cellphones, or using tobacco/vaping products in the room.
The Writing Lab is committed to TVCCâ€™s core theme of Fostering Educational Success. We strive to help students develop their independent writing skills through highly individualized and personal writing instruction.
