The Medgar Evers College Writing Center will operate in person with some virtual and after-hour sessions. The Writing Center provides a broad range of tutoring services and computer-assisted instruction for students to improve their writing. Our tutors serve as writing coaches and are trained to help students improve their writing across all disciplines. The goal of the Writing Center is to offer writing skills to students. If your professor refers you for tutoring/coaching or if you think you need to improve your writing skills, we use Zoom to connect with us.
If you are on campus, you can also drop in during our walk-in hours, 10:00AM - 5:00PM.
We recommend you to self-schedule an appointment using the student Navigate App or logging into the EAB Navigate system at https://www.mec.cuny.edu/academic-affairs/navigate/.
We are available on campus Monday – Thursday and Friday virtually. Call to schedule an appointment for tutoring using the Navigate App or calling us at 718-270-6953 or 718-270-5138. We are located on the first floor of the Library (in the back right hand corner) in Room B-1045A.
