2017 Summer Session Services

Writing

Begins May 22 for Sessions "A," "B," "C," and "D"

· Appointment Tutoring: Writers can schedule a 50-minute appointment in advance to discuss their work with a tutor. This format is ideal for writers who wish to explore in depth specific tools to solidify their ideas and refine their prose. 

· Weekly Tutoring: Writers can sign up to work with the same tutor up to twice a week to master the fundamentals of academic writing. This format is highly recommended for writers taking R&C courses and ideal for writers who are new to American academic writing conventions.

· Topical writing workshops: Our workshops offer a supportive, inclusive learning space for writers to further develop and strengthen their academic voice. Led by professional staff in small-group settings, writers will practice key elements of college writing and acquire a clear understanding of academic conventions and expectations at Cal.
