The English Center located in room L-209 at San Diego City College is hosting multiple workshops for various English related subjects for students seeking help this semester.

“The workshops are open to all students,” says Wendy Castellanos, a tutor senior at the English Center. “No appointment needed, just walk on in.”

The semester is reaching an end but there is still time to be a part of these workshops being taught by various professors, each with many skills to bring to students joining in the workshops.

Below is a list of the remaining workshops:

Thursday, Nov. 12 from 12:30 to 2 p.m., Developing a Paragraph with professor Gina Barnard.

Wednesday, Nov. 18 from 4 to 4:30 p.m., The Research Process and Using Sources with professor Gavin Brown.

Wednesday, Nov. 18 from 5 to 6 p.m., Increasing Your Vocabulary with professor David Walsh.

Thursday, Dec. 3 from 2:30 to 3 p.m., Revising and Editing with Prof. Gina Barnard

Thursday, Dec. 3 from 5 to 6 p.m., Preparing For Tests and In-Class Essays with professor David Walsh

The English Center serves the City College student body by providing one-on-one peer tutoring sessions, group tutoring, supplemental instruction workshops for students and much more to help students who are seeking additional help.

“Students don’t always have the chance to get all the information they need in a classroom setting,” says professor Gavin Brown, one of the professors taking part in the workshops. “And these workshops allow us to really target the biggest trouble areas that our students face, so we offer a number of workshops every semester.”
