Writing and Reading Lab

Welcome to the Writing and Reading Lab

The GCSC Writing and Reading Lab is here to support the achievement of students’ academic goals, and our staff is happy to provide tutoring for any of your courses that require academic writing and reading assignments. Our tutors are available for assistance with grammar, punctuation, and mechanics; essay development, reading comprehension, and organization of ideas; and MLA, APA, and Chicago formatting. Furthermore, we can help with other writing-intensive courses such as speech, literature, religion, ethics, psychology, and history; we also have an online Spanish Tutor available. In the Spring Semester of 2021, the Writing and Reading Lab will offer both online and in-person tutoring.
