SJSU Writing Center

The San José State University Writing Center offers a variety of resources to help students become better writers, and all our services are free for SJSU students. Our mission is to enhance the writing skills of SJSU students so they can communicate clearly in any setting (informal, academic, or professional). All our writing tutors have gone through a rigorous hiring process, and they are well trained to assist all students at all levels within all disciplines to become better writers. We accomplish this goal through offering the following services:

  • tutoring appointments;
  • drop-in tutoring sessions;
  • online tutoring;
  • one-hour workshops on various writing topics;
  • numerous online resources, including videos, handouts, and a blog;
  • special programming, such as writing retreats and conversation groups.
