A high school English teacher in California, Adam Wies, who also holds an MA in English, improves the writing skills in all of his students. Dedicated to the educational growth of students at all academic levels, Adam Wies has spent time outside the classroom as a tutor for the writing and reading center (WRC) at De Anza College in Cupertino, California.
De Anza’s WRC is a resource for students who wish to improve their writing skills. The WRC offers drop-in tutoring during its regular hours, during which time students can get quick help or feedback on their writing assignments. The WRC also takes appointments for weekly individual tutoring sessions. Students who need extra writing assistance can sign up for hour-long tutoring sessions with peer or volunteer tutors. Students who qualify for disability services are given priority for these weekly lessons.
Special workshops are offered periodically at the De Anza WRC. These classes help students improve specific reading, writing, and study skills so they can get the most out of their education.
