WAC Fellows Office Hours

Starting Fall 2020, WI certified faculty can direct their students to WAC office hours for guidance on writing assignments. These individual tutoring sessions will allow students to get feedback in the process of producing an assignment for a City Tech WI course. See below for FAQs.

Who can attend WAC office hours?

Any student enrolled in a Fall 2020 City Tech course taught by a WI certified instructor.

When are office hours? 

Thursdays from 1pm to 2pm EST. Dates for Fall 2020 are September 24, October 8, October 15, October 22, October 29, November 5.

How long is a tutoring session?

Students can sign up for 20 minute sessions.

What do students need to do to prepare for tutoring?

Students will be asked to submit a piece of writing piece along with the class assignment by 6pm the day before their scheduled session. Once a student has scheduled a session, they will be sent a confirmation email with a link for submission. A WAC fellow will review their work in preparation for a conversation about next steps for improvement.

What should students expect from tutoring sessions?

WAC fellows will focus feedback on higher order writing issues. This means that sessions will not extensively address copyediting. Instead, students will have an opportunity to think through the overall structure of their writing piece, how to address the assignment requirements, and how best to explain and support their reasoning. 

How can students register for a session?

Email the WAC coordinators, Samar ElHitti (SElHitti@citytech.cuny.edu) or Nina Bannett (NBannett@citytech.cuny.edu) for a registration link or more information about office hours.
