Writing Center

The Writing Center is OPEN for the Summer 2020 session beginning Monday 5/18! Though our physical location in Hudson Hall is closed, we are still offering writing assistance electronically through Zoom and email from Monday through Thursday, 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Our friendly tutors will respond to your writing questions and concerns, suggest revisions, and provide constructive feedback, all from the safety of home. No matter the course or assignment, The Writing Center can help show you the effective writing strategies needed to succeed. Continue reading to discover your two options for making an appointment:

OPTION #1 – LIVE Zoom Tutoring: If you would like to chat about and review your paper with a tutor in real-time over audio and video, you can schedule a LIVE tutoring appointment through Zoom during normal business hours (Mon. - Thurs. 9:00 – 1:00). To do so, students must send a Microsoft Word-compatible copy of their essay to the Writing Center at writingcenter@sunydutchess.edu and schedule a date and time for their appointment via the following booking form:> bit.ly/dccwritingcenter. Make sure to select “LIVE Zoom Tutoring” at the top of the form. Shortly before your scheduled appointment time, we will send you a link to the tutor’s Zoom room.

OPTION # 2 – Emailed Feedback: If unavailable for a live tutoring appointment, you may instead request emailed feedback from a Writing Center tutor. To do so,students must send a Microsoft Word-compatible copy of their essay to the Writing Center at writingcenter@sunydutchess.eduand schedule a date and time for their appointment via the following booking form: bit.ly/dccwritingcenter. Make sure to select “Emailed Feedback” at the top of the form.

Note: Depending on volume of requests and tutor availability, it may take up to 48 business hours during the regular work week to receive emailed feedback from a tutor. If your writing assignment is time sensitive, please consider scheduling a live Zoom tutoring appointment instead.
