Writing Center

The Writing Center is a free resource that offers writing support to students enrolled in any SCC class. We offer 55-minute, one-on-one sessions where students can talk with a writing tutor about their assignment, ideas, thesis statement, organization, or anything else related to writing. We offer both in-person sessions and online sessions using Google Meet.

How Online Tutoring Works

Online tutoring works just like face-to-face tutoring. Using Google Meet and Google Docs through your Los Rios Gmail, you can meet with a tutor in real-time. Just like any appointment in the Writing Center, tutors can help at any stage of the writing process for any class at Sacramento City College.

Watch the video below to see how online tutoring works at the SCC Writing Center.
