We all need a little extra help sometimes when it comes to mastering our studies. Thankfully our tutoring center and wonderful librarians have created workshops to help you not only succeed in your classes but in your life as well.
Grammar and Punctuation
Right now, grammar and punctuation might not seem that important but, they are essential in everyday life.
Whether you are writing an essay or sending an email to your boss, proper grammar could make or break your career.
I know daydreaming in class sounds a lot better than paying attention and taking notes, but those notes will be your best friend when it comes to the exam.
If you want to learn how to take better notes and keep your head out of the clouds, join us for this free note-taking workshop.
Research and Citations
Many of you are probably aware of the MLA format, however, you might be asked to write a paper in APA format.
This may throw you for a loop, but have no fear the TJC writing center is here with citation workshops.
This might be your first time ever having to write a research paper, and you might have some questions on what types of sources to use.
Well, come on down to the research tips workshop to help you better understand what sources to use.
How to Write an Essay
Knowing how to structure your paper, getting rid of nonessential information, and staying on the topic can be hard.
Thankfully the Writing Centers essay writing workshop can help you do all of that and more!
Don’t Confuse Popular and Scholarly Sources
You had multiple teachers drill into your head that Wikipedia is not a source, and there are many others you should stay away from too.
We have a workshop to help you differentiate popular and scholarly sources which will make your papers that much better.
How to Revise an Essay
Now that you have written a paper, you should proofread your work for necessary revisions.
If you don’t know where to begin, there is a workshop that will teach you how to properly edit your papers.
Creating a Resume
A spectacular resume will help you stand out from all the other candidates applying for that position.
If you need a little extra help in making sure your resume is career ready, attend the Writing Centers resume workshop.
You can find the dates and times to all of these workshops on our events calendar!
