Writing Resource Center
“[I]n a writing center the object is to make sure that writers, and not necessarily their texts, are what get changed by instruction. In axiom form it goes like this: Our job is to produce better writers, not better writing.”
-- Stephen North, "The Idea of a Writing Center"

Need help with an essay assignment? Confused about grammar rules? Or just want to polish your writing skills?
The CSUB Writing Resource Center (WRC) is here to help. We offer FREE tutoring, workshops, and other support services to currently enrolled CSUB students. We currently offer tutoring in writing, literature, linguistics, and MLA/APA citation.
At the WRC, our tutors are trained to focus on improving students’ overall skills, not just their grades. Rather than just providing “the answer,” we assist students at all stages of assignments to help them learn to think critically about their own writing in any discipline.Our hours are Monday-Thursday: 9-5 p.m. and Friday: 9-1p.m. .
Call us with any questions at 661-654-6411.

Jeff was really helpful! He read my personal statement for medical school, and I got into USC. Thank you, WRC!
