In a Writing Feedback appointment, writing consultants will help you brainstorm or look at a draft of your paper. They'll try to determine if you’re answering your prompt and answer any questions you have about your writing. They'll look at your ideas, organization, and clarity.
Need help from the Writing Center but don't feel like getting out of your pajamas? We understand. The Online Writing Center can help with writing feedback for any MiraCosta class. How does it work? You send us your paper, and our trained consultants will send a short video response with suggestions on how to improve it. Please note that these are Writing Feedback appointments for class assignments. We can not work on scholarship, transfer, or grammar in online appointments.
In a Reading Assistance appointment, reading consultants will talk to you about your reading process, so you can better focus your attention. They'll also look at your textbook with you and help you develop effective note-taking strategies and reading strategies, so you can better understand what you’re reading.
In a Parts of Speech appointment, grammar consultants will look at one of your body paragraphs to find any patterns of errors you might have. They’ll give you a brief mini-lesson on one pattern and help you understand how to correct and avoid those mistakes. These appointments should be made after you’ve received writing feedback, not before.
Scholarship and Transfer Essay appointments are available to help you write essays for those purposes.
