The Writing Center (ELC)

Writing Support for Cabrillo Students

Welcome to the Writing Center

The Cabrillo College Writing Center offers tutoring and a variety of resources to help students improve their writing process.

We offer:

  • In-person tutoring through drop-ins

  • Online scheduled appointments

  • Workshops

We support any kind of written work in all content areas at any stage, ranging from the development of ideas to the final draft.

What does it mean to get tutored in writing?

Many students operate on the belief that tutoring is only a support to those struggling with classes. However, we believe in the process of writing and the importance of peer feedback no matter what level of writer you are. We can help brainstorm, develop ideas, formulate a thesis, organize drafts, cite sources, format, and articulate your ideas. We do not operate as editors but as guides to help you gain confidence in your writing ability and learn what processes work for you to make your writing the best it can be.
