Tutoring for the Writing Proficiency Assessment (WPA) for students with disabilities

All students registered with Student Ability Success Center are invited to attend this workshop. (Other students can take advantage of WPA workshops offered through the campus test office.)

In addition to workshops for passing the WPA, the SSS Writing Center provides individualized tutoring so that participants can practice writing WPA response essays and receive feedback. It is strongly recommended that participants confer with Writing Center staff several weeks prior to the exam. To receive more information or to consult one-on-one with a writing tutor about preparation for the WPA, contact Steve Haslem, SSS Writing Specialist, at 619-594-8336 or by email at
