WRITING CENTER Tutoring Appointments Help
for College Common App & Supplement Writing
DECEMBER 1 & JANUARY Deadlines Fast Approaching!
With the December 1 and January college application deadlines nearing, this is just a reminder that the MHS Writing Center is available to all students again this year.
Ms. Garcia and Ms. Wren-Burgess (WB) have been meeting with students to work on college application essays and college supplements, resumes, academic essays, and other writing assignments for classes.
Signing up for a tutoring appointment is the same as it has been for several years: via the weekly Writing Center email, students simply click on the Sign Up Genius to fill in their names for the tutoring appointment time that works best for them in the coming week.
Differences this year:
Students receive an email from either Ms. Garcia or WB confirming their appointment day and time, together with a link for the zoom meeting, and a request for the student to share their writing with the teacher.
Typically, students sign up for writing center appointments during their remote cohort days, and anyone can sign up for Wednesday Writing Center appointments.
But students don't need to wait until they have a finished paper to make an appointment!
Students who want help getting started, need help with their writing in the midst of their writing, as well as those who want to review finished pieces before submission, are all welcome to make appointments for the Writing Center!
If you have questions or concerns about the Writing Center, please feel free to reach out to Ms. Garcia (email@example.com and/or WB at firstname.lastname@example.org).
