Tutoring and Writing Centers: Grammar Clinic


Grammar Clinic is offered online through ZOOM. (Click on the link to access the Clinic). 

The Grammar Clinic offers a non-judgmental arena for learning with no tests, homework, or grades. It also creates a community of learners who come from across the college community – students at all levels, both credit, and continuing education/workforce development; staff, faculty, and administration. The workshops range from the elements of grammar to the tools of grammar analysis, and rhetorical grammar.
