Writing Center

The Writing Center+

The Writing Center+ is a free service where trained professional and peer Writing Coaches act as a practice audience and support Lane Community College students in their reading, speaking, and writing development. 

Where is it?

The Writing Center+ is online for spring 2020. Visit us on Moodle in the Get Help Here: Lane Support Hub. All Lane students are enrolled in this support space for free. 

When is it open? 

Most services are available 9:00 - 4:30 p.m. Monday - Friday, 5:00 - 8:00 p.m. Tuesday - Thursday, and 10:00 - 2:00 Saturday.

How can I get online tutoring?

  • Go to the Lane Support Hub in Moodle. There, you will find discussion forums and a link to make a Zoom-based appointment.
  • For fast citation, grammar, or punctuation support, chat with us using your Lane email account. Our email account is writingtutor@lanecc.edu.
    • Send us a request to connect using Google Chat.
    • We will accept the request, and type responses to your questions there.
  • If you prefer written comments, use your Lane email to send your project to writingtutor@lanecc.edu. Projects submited between 9:00 a.m. Monday - Friday will be reviewed within 24 hours. Projects submitted over weekends will be reviewed within 48 hours. In your email to us, include the following information:
    • the assignment description/guidelines (as an attachment or copied and pasted below your name),
    • three questions or areas of concern you have about your project, and
    • any other information or feedback you have already received.

What can I get help with?

Writing and Communication Coaches can help with all stages of a writing project from making decisions about what type of project to create to organizing ideas and citing sources. We do not proofread, but we do assist you in finding, learning about, and fixing individual error patterns.

We also help students with reading for assignments and projects and with speaking and listening tasks. During coaching sessions, we may help you use resources like those found on our Pinterest collection--check them out!
