Center for Academic Success Writing Services

The writing wing of CAS provides writing tutoring for all Cal State LA courses, from first-year introductory courses to graduate seminars. You can come in with any type of writing assignment at any stage of the writing process.

During a 30-minute tutoring session, we can work with you on identifying and correcting errors and help you develop strategies for effectively presenting your ideas. We are strongly focused on the long-term development of individual writers.

The best way to get one-to-one feedback is to make an appointment. The process is on our Tutoring Services page. In addition to one-to-one tutoring for students, we also offer support for the WPE.

Student Research Consultants

Student Research Consultants (SRCs) work one-to-one or with small groups with students with diverse research needs.  SRCs guide students through the research process, locate articles and books, refine research topics, model search strategies, and offer help using various citation styles.  Our goal for each student is that they can now take control of their own learning and research after their consultation visit.
