If you do not have a Lone Star ID/ library card, use your MyLoneStar username and password by clicking the link below the barcode login. If you want to get a library barcode, fill out the Library Card Request Form.

There are two ways to get help with your writing assignment from an LSC-Tomball Writing Tutor:
Brainfuse Tutor Match:
Schedule an online tutoring session with an LSC writing tutor using Brainfuse Tutor Match (see instructions in the Get Help From An LSC Tutor Online box above). Once you have scheduled an appointment with a tutor, the tutor will contact you and will likely ask you to email the paper to them prior to the appointment. During your appointment, they will discuss your paper with you in real time, possibly using screen share to discuss the paper.
Online Writing Lab:
Submit your paper to the Online Writing Lab. Once a tutor receives your paper, she will take a day or two to review it and then return it to you with comments. You will not be able to discuss your paper with the tutor in real time. Tutors will return your critiqed work to you within 24 – 48 hours. (Returns may take longer on weekend days.)
