Writing Resource 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.
