From the CLU Writing Center

A Message from the Writing Center



I am pleased to announce that the Writing Center is expanding its services to the Oxnard campus starting November 7th. One of our wonderful graduate writing tutors, Heather Molloy, will be available for writing tutoring on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4-8pm in the library. She is well prepared to serve students who are enrolled in the ADEP program, PsyD program, MS in Counseling Psych (MFT) program , MEd in Teacher Leadership program, and the teaching credential programs offered at the Oxnard campus.

The CLU Writing Center believes that it is important to create better writers, not just better papers. Tutors are therefore trained to act as interested audience members rather than as professional editors or proofreaders. They will actively collaborate with students on ways to improve their writing by asking lots of questions, giving feedback, and demonstrating self-editing strategies that can be applied to future writing tasks. Students are encouraged to visit the Writing Center at any stage of the writing process, from first thoughts to final drafts.

Students can make an appointment online at Faculty can discover the variety of services we offer by visiting our updated website at:

We are also actively working on our online tutoring services for students enrolled in classes at the Central Coast and Woodland Hills campuses and in online programs.

…Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Many thanks!
