Welcome to all new and returning students to MVCC! Kristen Raab, the full-time Writing Tutor, would like you to take this time and see what services the Writing Lab can offer you throughout the semester.

  • Tutoring services are free!
  • We are located in AB151 and IT131 in Utica.  PC117 is our new Rome location.  
  • Use our online system to sign up for a tutoring session.  Here is the link: http://tutoring.mvcc.edu:81/Default.aspx
  • Appointments are preferred, but we will take walk-ins when we do not have other students or commitments.   
  • AB151 is open Monday-Thursday 8-7, Friday 8-4, Saturday 10-2, and Sunday 2-6.
  • Kristen's tutoring hours: Monday 8:30-12 and 1-4; Tuesday 8-12 and 1-3; Wednesday 8:30-12 and 1-4:30; Thursday 8:30-12 and 1-3; and Friday 8:30-12 and 1-4.

How can we help you?

  • Help with brainstorming, developing a thesis, and reviewing rough drafts.
  • The Writing Lab cannot provide content help for courses besides English, but can offer advice on organization, grammar, citations, and more.
  • Writing is a process; give yourself enough time to revise your papers.
  • Provides assistance with study skills, research, and citations.
  • The staff will not write for you, but we will be there to encourage and guide you.
  • Check out our handouts on grammar, test taking, college writing, and more!
  • Staff members cannot help with exams or graded homework exercises without written permission from your instructor.
  • Students may study or work on papers independently in the Learning Center.

We look forward to seeing you!
