Veterans attending Eastern are can now get help with their writing projects. Eastern's Writing Center is offering tutoring services in the Veteran's Center. Eric Alan, a Writing Center tutor and an eight-year veteran, will provide six hours per week of writing tutoring in the VETS Center.
"Veterans can bring anything from assignments and basic ideas to complete drafts," said Alan, "and I will work with them one-on-one in the informal setting of the VETS Center to help answer all of their questions and concerns, and in the process help them become better writers."
Alan will be in the Veteran's Center on Tuesdays from 11-1 and Thursdays from 10-2. He will be in the Writing Center on Mondays from 9 a.m. to 1 and 3-5 p.m.
Veterans can make appointments three ways. They can visit www.easternct.edu/writingcenter and go to the "Make an Appointment" link. On the top of the page there is a pull-down menu that will show you the appointments for the Veteran's Center. They can also email Alan at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will schedule an appointment. "Walk-ins are also welcomed," said Alan, "but an appointment reserves time, which can be useful near mid-terms and finals when the tutoring load is high." Veterans interested in help with writing may also call Alan at (860) 422-5757.
