Writing Resources Guide
These writing resources guides are designed to assist students, faculty, and staff with becoming comfortable formatting papers and documents. Information can be found on MLA and APA citations, bibliography resources, and how to access citation builders at North Carolina State University as well as UNC libraries. Links for additional information are available about Plagiarism and Scholarly versus Popular Sources.

The Jaguar Writing Portal
The Jaguar Writing Portal is a FREE writing tutorial service available to all JCC students. Professional English and writing tutors will review your written work and provide meaningful feedback. The writing portal tutors will not edit or fix drafts. But the tutor will make suggestions about improving a student draft through clarification and explanation. This online portal is available 24/7. Feedback is received within 24 hours.

The Jaguar Tutoring Center
The Jaguar Tutoring Center’s goal is to provide high-quality academic support to currently enrolled Johnston Community College students. The center provides group and individual tutoring at no cost to the student. Tutoring is provided by professional tutors and is available in most subject areas. Jaguar Tutoring English and writing tutors provide a comfortable, supportive place to work on your academic writing assignments, digital publications (blogs, wikis, and social media), literary competition submissions, transitional and application essays, career search letters, and writing for fun.  The tutoring center also provides online tutoring through ThinkingStorm.
