Online One-to-One Tutoring
One-to-One Tutoring are half-hour sessions providing the same assistance to students that they would receive at a center. It is open to all ESC students. Students can email the assignment they need help with, and I will review it with them online. The session is live and any suggestions can be seen instantly. Sessions are offered on Saturdays, from 1 pm to 4 pm with the following writing coaches:
Layla – 1-2pm

Each week, there is a writing workshop addressing a part of the writing process. Topics include developing a research topic from current readings, academic codes and conventions, avoiding plagiarism, and acquiring the skills essential to becoming an efficient academic writer. Writing workshops are offered at Old Westbury and Hauppauge units of the Long Island Center.
Online Writing Workshops
Writing workshops are offered online on Saturdays; from 11 am to 1 pm. Workshops are live, and students with microphones are welcome to ask questions and give comments. Those without microphones will able to type comments and questions in a chat box. Students will receive a recording of workshop sessions for future reference.
Topics for each week’s writing workshop can be found on the workshop calendars.
To avoid confusion, it is important to be specific, and inform the person taking your registration information whether it is a one-to-one tutoring session (individual ½ hour session) or a writing workshop (2 hour workshop with other students) you want to attend.
In addition to the above workshops, Academic Support Services does offer special workshops. Unlike the regular writing workshops offered throughout the term, availability of these workshops is limited. One such workshop is the Starting the Term off Right workshop. This workshop is given at the beginning of the term, and is an opportunity for students to address the essentials for a successful semester.
