We can assist with writing assignments for any class, general writing support (such as a scholarship essay), or tutoring for English language learners. We look forward to working with you! Please read the information and directions below.

    1. Send an email with your question at any time and a staff member will reply during open hours. Please include:
      • A subject – something simple like “writing tutoring” will ensure we receive the message in our inbox
      • Your name and 6-digit MHCC ID
      • The course and  instructor name
      • So that we can help you, please also include: 
        • What kind of assignment is this?
        • When is the assignment due?
        • What is your goal for how the tutor will help? Some examples are, “I need help revising my thesis” or “I want to make sure I’m following the instructions”
      • Send to Writing.Tutor@mhcc.edu
        Note: We prefer that you use your Saints email address if you are able to access it at this time. If not, let us know and we will help.
    2. Check your email for a response from a writing tutor. We can offer you various options for writing or English language help, including:
      • Online video and/or audio conversations through Zoom or Microsoft Teams
      • Shared documents, such as OneDrive
      • Email
      • Phone
    3. Please note that wewill not "edit" or make changes to any student's paper or assignment for them. But we will talk with you (or make written comments to you) about how you might improve your paper or do your assignment with more success. We may be asking you questions, and your answers to those questions will help you write a better paper and become a better writer or English language user.

    This way of learning is new for all of us and we want to know what is working well or needing improvement. Please send such comments to the area coordinator (Lawrence.Gilius@mhcc.edu). Thanks for your patience and we look forward to supporting your learning!
