Our Best Answer: How do I get tutoring, and what kinds can I get, at the Writing Center?

Writing Center

The Writing Center is located in sunny B200.

Phone: (718) 482-5688

The Writing Center will open for regular tutoring for Fall II on Monday, January 13.

Monday–Friday:  9:15 AM–3:15 PM and 4:30–9:00 PM

Saturday (walk-in, not by appointment): 10:30 AM–3:15 PM

Tutoring at the Writing Center is now by appointment; it’s not a walk-in center. But getting a tutoring session at the Writing Center is simple and easy. To get a tutoring appointment, all you need to do is log into My LaGuardia, scroll down, and click the red Writing Center Appointment button on the lower right side.

Students must be on time for appointments, and after five minutes, appointments may be given to students on the Wait List. The Wait List is also online and appears when appointments for a period are filled; students who put their names on the Wait List come to the Writing Center and wait to see if there are openings because of students who do not keep their appointments.

Several pointers to keep in mind:

  • Answer the prompts in order
  • On the drop-down menu of tutors, click on any tutor; we’ll assign you appropriately when you get to the Writing Center
  • Phone numbers should not include any spaces or dashes between the numbers
  • You may skip the Comments box
  • As the appointment page states, you must be on time for your appointment. After five minutes your appointment may be given to students on the wait-list.
  • If you have any trouble making an appointment, you can come into the Writing Center and we’ll help you make one here.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
