Imagine writing a paper, starting to type, and then freezing. The paper is due tomorrow and you have fallen victim to writer’s block. It isn’t necessarily a bad thing, especially if it’s the Writer’s Block in Rooms 118 and 122 of Gonzales Hall.
The lab offers computers for academic and personal use and one-on-one tutoring. Students must have a college ID, state ID or a driver’s license.
Tutoring is available by appointment or walk-in, just check in in Room 122. Tutors have already taken English classes. “Tutoring sessions usually last 45 minutes,” lab manager Antonio Garza said.
“We mainly cover ENGL 0300 and ENGL 0301 courses, although some ENGL 1301 and ENGL 1302 come in,” he said. “Students from other disciplines can come in.”
The lab offers study materials and textbooks for ENGL 0300 and 0301 and practice materials for the Accuplacer.
The lab can accommodate disabled students who register.
The lab is open 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday.
