Writing for College Class

New! Writing for College Class

College Writing Class for Seniors

Our new summer Writing for College class is an anxiety-busting, skill-building, and understanding-deepening program that will help you prepare for the level of writing your college professors will expect.

  • Review the basics of good academic writing
  • Refresh essentials like thesis, structure, and argument
  • Explore the more sophisticated techniques used in college-level writing.

You will be introduced to some of the most common assignment types, including close readings, the “lens” essay, and the research paper.

You will leave the class with a solid grounding in the fundamentals of academic writing, and a good sense of what to expect (and how to handle it!) at the start of Freshman year.

This course will meet Mondays for 6 consecutive weeks:
July 8, 15, 22 & 29, August 5 & 12
Time: 10-12:30 or 1-3:30 (2.5 hours)

The course fee is $300

Multitasking Moth

Jim Gunn, environmental science instructor here at The Tutorial Center had brought in a tree branch that contained a brown silk cocoon to help students (and staff!) learn about nature. The Cecropia moth, the largest native moth in North America, decided to eclose right before our digital photography class this morning and provided a rare opportunity for ultra close up photography of a very beautiful insect. The branch was then taken outside where it will finish plumping its wings and eventually fly off.

New! Kickstart Classes for iPad Users

We’ve added two new workshops to help you get the most out of your iPad. No matter how you use your iPad we can help you with navigation and features. Syncing and backing up. Plus we’ll introduce you to Apps we know are useful or fun.

The first class Getting More From Your iPad is meant for folks who maybe have had their iPad for a little while but aren’t using it to its fullest.

That class is coming up soon, on December 8th, so click here to find out more . You can also register online.

The second class, Your New iPad, will be on January 5, 2012 and will be geared to band-spanking-new iPad users who want a little guidance on the iPads features and Apps.
