Writing Center's Spring Semester Opening

The Writing Center will be open for tutoring for the Spring 2013 semester on Monday, February 11. In the meantime, students may begin signing up for weekly scheduled appointments at the Writing Center, located in the Academic Core building room 1C18.

Our tutors are able to assist students with writing assignments for any course, as well as with preparing personal statements for graduate school applications. Students may also receive feedback via email. visit http://www.york.cuny.edu/student/writing-center/email-tutoring for more information about Ask a Tutor.

I strongly encourage faculty to refer those students early you feel might need specific kinds of help by using the referral form online at


Mid-semester you will be receiving notices about our ever popular workshop series Wanna Write Right??? The Writing Center tutors will be facilitating these workshops covering topics such as grammar and APA/MLA citation.

If you would like to have a Writing Center staff member visit your class to talk briefly about the Center's services, please contact me at cmcdonald@york.cuny.edu, or call the Writing Center at (718) 262-2494.

Our Spring 2013 hours of operation are:

  • Monday-Thursday 10 am-8 pm

I hope that your semester is off to a great start, and I look forward to working toward a successful semester with you and your students.
