Saturday 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

Sunday 1 p.m.-4 p.m.

Face-to-face tutoring available 7 days a week!

Online tutoring available by email. Please, send your assignment, questions, and any writing you have done so far to dree@tjc.edu. The Director will assign it to a tutor for his/her comments. After the tutor has reviewed the documents, the Director will email the comments back to you.

The Writing Center is located on the 2nd floor of the Vaughn Library. Writing consultants are available by appointments. Please, call 903-510-2577 to make an appointment.

Our consultants offer one-to-one writing consultations for any student working on any writing assignment for any class at TJC. Our goal is to help all TJC students become better writers at their own pace and in correlation with their own goals. This means that our focus is always on the writer first and the written product second. We are here to help students navigate the (sometimes rough) seas of academic writing.


*Disclaimer: Tutoring Services does not guarantee grades. The Tutoring Center and STEM Tutoring Center aims at equipping students with techniques and strategies to aid you in your own studying, as well as provide some content clarification. We do not have walk-in or one-to-one subject tutors for every course, but strive to have as many for our commonly requested courses, as possible. When receiving writing assistance in the Writing Center, keep in mind that the writing consultants will not write the paper for you. However, you and the consultants will discuss your writing concerns and strategies for improvement.

Please, also keep in mind that tutoring is based on student tutor availability. Our tutors are students, too that have to juggle their own course work, families, and other commitments while being a part of the tutoring services.

All tutoring services are on a first come, first serve basis.
