The English Writing Center is a free resource that provides English writing and oral communication support for University of Puerto Rico-Mayagüez students. They are a safe haven for writers and English language learners regardless of their level of proficiency or stage in the writing process. Their fully bilingual and academically-diverse peer tutors conduct one-on-one tutoring conferences, conversational English sessions, and a variety of workshops targeting typical areas of writing difficulty. Their main goal is to help writers, from any academic discipline and level, become better writers.

The center is now operating under a hybrid modality, both walk-in tutoring sessions and remote tutoring sessions by appointment, Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. For walk-in sessions, visit the center which is located in Celis 208; as for remote sessions, schedule an appointment by filling out this request form: https://forms.gle/EpYrNVMHxPXbicBs9

In the case of students that need a tutoring session before a deadline, we strongly recommend that they visit the center or schedule an appointment several days before the due date of their project. Due to the high volume of students, we cannot guarantee that a tutor will be available immediately when the student arrives or after they make an online appointment request.

If you have doubts about how to schedule an appointment, contact our office at civis@uprm.edu or visit the center. If you are a student or educator and would like to know more about our services and resources, check out the Writing Center’s Better Writers Blog, or send us an email at tutores-ewc-civis@uprm.edu
