Writers' Corner


Mission and Services

The Writers’ Corner staff firmly believe that good writing is an essential skill for being successful in college. Our main goal, therefore, is to help students become more confident and effective writers.

Whether drafting research papers, preparing marketing proposals, or working on writing projects for any class at Amarillo College, students will benefit from one-on-one tutoring sessions with knowledgeable and encouraging tutors.

Our tutors review assignment requirements, provide constructive feedback, and guide students through all phases of the writing process.

The Writers’ Corner is open to all students, regardless of academic discipline and skill level.

We Offer:

  • One-on-one tutoring sessions with trained tutors
  • Small workshops throughout the semester covering various aspects of academic writing
  • In-class presentations on the role of the Writers' Corner
  • A waiting area for walk-ins and early arrivals
  • Coffee for students with appointments
