Reading and Writing Center
Learn How to Be a Successful Reader and Writer
The Reading and Writing Center provides free tutoring on a drop-in basis. Teacher Associates are available to provide reading assistance in areas such as how to better process information from a text, how to take notes and organize information from a text, how to understand main ideas and supporting details, and how to identify context clues. In addition, the Center also provides assistance to students in deciphering writing tasks, organizing writing assignments, and developing content and critical thinking. While the TAs do not provide copy editing services, they do assist students in identifying and correcting specific grammatical errors.
The Reading and Writing Center provides a Workshop Series presented by a faculty tutor. This series provides focused instruction on particular skills and reading and writing tasks, from fragment identification to scholarship essay. Please be sure to check back soon for a detailed schedule of upcoming workshops.
