Crafting Compelling Resumes and Cover Letters

The Writing Center is located on the first floor of DeMare Hall, DH 156 inside the Tutoring Center.  Tutoring is conducted by faculty tutors only.  Services include one-on-one tutoring appointments, walk-ins, and workshops. Tutors identify writing problems, provide instruction in theory, and offer practice for written improvement in any subject/course. Tutors can offer pre-paper and post-paper consultations.  All Writing Skills students are strongly encouraged to attend tutorial sessions as part of their developmental course requirements. Sessions are in 20-minute increments.

If you have any questions or need assistance, email tutorcenter@ccm.edu or call 973-328-5367.
