The WELL (Writing & English Learning Lab)


The WELL offers a wide range of writing and general language support to South’s global community of English language learners as they navigate the academic and cultural expectations at South Seattle College.

Along with the Writing Center, the WELL also offers writing and language support to students from BTS and professional/technical programs. 

Walk in any time for a half hour tutoring session OR make an appointment to avoid occasional wait times!

You can choose from the following types of help when you sign in:

Assignment Assist

Get one-on-one support on any part of the writing process, from brainstorming to rough drafts. This includes help with basic computer skills.

Grammar Slammer

Learn or practice specific grammar-related skills, from difficult verb tenses to run-on sentences. Students can pick the topic, or the WELL tutor can pick a common grammar difficulty to focus on. (One-on-one or groups up to 3 students!)

Talk Time

Practice conversation and vocabulary skills, review vocabulary words, or rehearse for oral presentations. The tutor can also assist with simple grammar issues during these speaking-based sessions. (One-one or groups up to 3 students!)
