Online Writing Center (OWC)
Free online writing tutoring is available to all currently enrolled College of Marin students. The Online Writing Center (OWC) is staffed with experienced COM tutors—instructional specialists and English instructors—enabling students to address their writing questions online, 24/7. There are helpful grammar and composition links, as well as instructional materials about all aspects of the writing process and essay mechanics. Students can use these resources, as well as get help from tutors. While tutors do not proofread or edit students' work, they do provide assistance to students who are working to correct their patterns of errors and who need help with essay mechanics.
The COM writing tutors can help you with:
- Writing assignments for all college subjects
- Grammar, idea development, organization, and research
- College entrance essays, UC/CSU applications
- Scholarship applications
- Resumes and cover letters
