Located in the English, Languages, and Business Building (DH-210), the Composition and Literature Center (CLC) offers individualized instruction for all Howard Community College students enrolled in English courses. Our tutorial sessions tend to focus on the following four areas:
All English tutoring in the CLC is provided on a walk-in basis; we do not currently schedule appointments. Early arrival will help ensure that you'll have the opportunity to meet individually with a tutor.
All students seeking a tutorial session must sign in at the receptionist’s desk. Prior to an initial tutorial session, each student should review the following PowerPoint presentation on conference procedures: http://classweb.howardcc.edu/english/devwriting/powerpoint_student/.
As the presentation makes clear, we expect students to be active participants in the CLC conferences. We do not offer a drop-off proofreading and editing service. Our sessions are dialogues in which students and tutors are equal participants.
English tutors will be available in the CLC during the spring semester for the following weekly schedule:
Monday – Thursday: 9:00 a.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Walk-in Lab/CLC Usage Pattern Studies
Who uses the English tutoring service? What percentage of CLC users are writing in English as a second language? From which classes do most students who use the CLC come? The answers to these questions and many more can be found in the Walk-in Lab/CLC Usage Pattern Studies.
