SPX Writing Center Offers Tutoring for Students
September 1st, 2016

The SPX Writing Center offers personalized, one-on-one writing tutoring in all subject areas. We recognize that writing an English paper is different than writing a paper for Social Studies or a lab report for Biology. To that end, we aim to help students fine-tune composition skills in a variety of areas. Under the guidance of Co-Directors Ms. Dent and Ms. Page, Writing Center (WC) Peer Tutors provide targeted assistance throughout all levels of the writing/drafting process. WC Peer Tutors are available to help you revise a thesis statement, organize your outline, work alongside you as you proofread your paper, etc. An extra set of eyes is always a good thing! Sign up for an appointment (or two! or three!) so we can help you produce your best work and equip you with the tools you need to succeed.

Seniors: Come see us for help with your college application essays! Workshops will be available for help with this as well.

Additionally, we want to be your one-stop shop for information regarding writing contests, scholarship competitions, and information about other opportunities for you to publish and receive recognition for your work.

SPX WRITING CENTER HOURS FOR 2016-2017 (beginning late August--listen for announcements):
Tuesdays: 3-3:40 pm

Thursdays: 3-3:40 pm

The WC will meet in either Ms. Dent's (209) or Ms. Page's (208) room. Check the sign on the door to see where we are. Appointments are recommended (see Google docs sheet at the top of this page), but drop-ins are always welcome!​
