The Writing Center: About Us

Where is the Writing Center?
The Writing Center is located in Building 18, Room 104.  

Who can use the Writing Center?
If you are enrolled in English 850 or ESL 850, ESL 400, or an English composition course, you can use the center any time during our open hours. However, any College of San Mateo student can use the center during drop-in hours.

What can I do at the Writing Center?
You can make appointments to meet with an English or ESL instructor for one-on-one tutoring; advice on an essay or paper for any course at CSM; or help with a personal statement or work-related writing project. You can work on a specific writing skill by completing tutorials, which are found in the Writing Center and on our website. You can attend ESL grammar workshops that focus on grammar. You can learn about writing and literature as well as writers and their cultures by using our books and instructional materials or by viewing DVDs and VHS tapes. You can also use the computers in the Quiet Room to research, write, and print your essays.
