Writing Services

Writing? Reading? Giving a presentation? One of the advantages TRIO students have is FREE access to writing and communication skills support for not only English classes, but also for other classes and projects. 

What is the main goal of writing skills tutoring? It's pretty simple, but needs to be said: the main goal of writing skills services is to help students become better writers and communicators. The final responsibility for proofreading and for grades received rests with the student as a writer.

What help is offered? SSS provides tutoring in areas ranging from basic grammar to structuring an argument, writing a script, or getting published. The TRIO Achievers' Writing Skills Program also helps prepare students for the Bowie State University English Proficiency Examination (EPE). TRIO students in English 100, Reading 100, English 101, and English 102 are required to meet with the writing skills specialist as part of their participation in the TRIO program.
