Learn to compose successful essays and assignments

Welcome to the English Learning Center

The Cabrillo College English Learning Center serves all students enrolled at the school and currently taking courses in which written work is required.

The Center tutoring staff strives to provide students with composition and critical thinking skills to enable them to compose successful essays and assignments on their own. We work closely with learning communities across campus, ACES and STARS, to provide pre-transfer level students with support in development of writing and critical thinking skills that will ensure their academic progress over the long term.

The English Learning Center offers English 100 grammar labs to those students, including STARS students, enrolled in an English 100 composition course.

English Learning Center Location


The Center, located on the Aptos campus (behind and upstairs from the library in Building 1000), has tables for academic study and projects. There is also an ESL Room, where ESL students and others are invited to work quietly at tables and computers. ESL students can also participate in lab activities. Students are asked to sign into our database when visiting the English Learning Center. On the first visit a student will register and create an account. Thereafter, students log into the Center to use the computers, the workspace, and/or to request tutoring. We look forward to welcoming our students and to helping you successfully reach your academic and career goals.

I have always struggled writing papers, but the English Learning Center has helped me with grammar and how to properly format my essays. I strongly encourage every student to use the English Learning Center resources.
