YVCC provides a writing center where students may receive free, one-to-one assistance with their writing projects for any course, academic or vocational. Writing consultants with four-year degrees in English or related fields or peer consultants trained in tutoring writing meet with students to:
- read, listen, and talk about ideas
- help students assess the strengths and weaknesses of their writing
- suggest strategies for generating ideas, planning, drafting, revising, and editing
Students should bring a copy of an assignment with them and any corresponding notes, drafts, or disks.

Why should I use Tutoring Services?
Wise use of your study time is important, since each new topic in mathematics builds upon previous concepts. If you spend a few minutes seeking answers to questions, you can save hours of time and frustration and be more successful in mathematics. Students often meet their friends at the Center to study and prepare for exams. In analyzing student success, we have found that students who use the Math Center are as much as 12% more successful in their classes than those who do not use its services. Hope to see you soon!
