The CCSF English Department provides a wide range of lab support to help students at all levels become stronger writers and readers. Most English courses have a lab requirement, some of which can be satisfied through distance-ed options.  What should you do?  Where should you go?  The English Lab offers different ways to interact and different ways to learn, making for a powerful overlap when teachers, students, and tutors understand what is needed and how our lab services, individually and collectively, can address those needs. Use the labs; learn more.

Tutors focus on patterns of error, help you work through difficult parts of the writing process, and act as readers who provide constructive feedback. Tutors will also help you become a stronger reader!

The English Lab is loaded with grammar, composition, idea-mapping, and reading software, and shortcuts to powerful English web sites--plus wonderful reading skills workbooks.  Lab faculty--and your teacher--will help direct your lab and web activities to help you improve your reading, grammar, research, and essay writing.

The English Lab also offers great writing, reading, and grammar groups!
