Basic Skills English Lab

The Basic Skills English Lab, now part of the Writing Center, currently provides online tutoring through Uupswing Use your BMCC student email username and password to log in. Here are instructions to help you use the new online system.

The Basic Skills English Lab primarily serves students in English 88 and English 95. Only students who had taken ENG 95 twice are allowed to take the 20 hour CUNY Assessment Test Workshop (CATW) Tutoring program instead of taking ENG 95 a third time.

In the Basic Skills English Lab:

  • We work in small groups led by a tutor to make you a competent writer.
  • We have a number of writing activities to improve your fluency in reading and writing.
  • We have special techniques to help you find and fix your own errors.

Please Note: If you are a student in an English 102, 201, or 300 course you can have access to tutoring via the Learning Resource Center.
