Our Services

The Writing Center offers one-on-one tutoring sessions for all students.  We can work on any paper for any class at CSUSM. We can also work on scholaship essays, personal statements, cover letters, and other types of writing.

We currently allow GEW instructors to require two sessions for each student. If you require your students to visit the Writing Center, please contact us to let us know at

We also offer online tutoring services.  For more information about our online services, visit our Online Consultation page.

We currently offer brief (10-minute) classroom presentations about the Writing Center. These sessions help introduce students to our services and what we can offer in terms of assistance. Presentations are best scheduled at the beginning of a semester or a few weeks before a large paper is due. If you are interested in a classroom visit, please contact us.

We also can put together workshops on a variety of writing related topics (citing sources, developing thesis statements, etc.). These workshops can be set up at the request of either a faculty member or a group of students.  If you are interested in arranging a workshop, send a request to
