Reading & Writing Center

The Reading and Writing Center is where students can receive assistance in writing and editing their own work.

While our tutors can't guarantee a good grade on a paper, tell you what to write or solve all your problems in one session, tutors can help you learn to be a better reader, writer, editor, and to brainstorm ideas for your paper.

Our Services

  • Support for reading and writing assignments
  • One-unit credit course, ENGL121, for attending regular weekly tutoring
  • 20-minute classroom workshops or 5-minute introduction for their class
  • Preparation assistance for the Writing Placement for Juniors (WPJ)
  • Early semester field trips to the Center
