The Berkeley City College Writing Center

In the BCC Writing Center, you’ll receive structure and support to help you write academic essays, everything from weekly submissions on Canvas to final papers.
You’ll learn to plan and organize essays, develop ideas, and, finally, edit and proofread your own work.

We offer writing workshop classes that will give you consistent support to improve your writing skills :

Drop-in Tutoring The writing workshops (see above) are preferable to individual tutoring for students who need to do significant work to improve their writing skills. However, we do offer individual tutoring appointments for students who are unable to enroll in the writing workshop.
