Reading and Writing Center

‚ÄčKeep Calm and Visit the Writing Center

The Reading and Writing Center (RWC), part of SJCC's Learning Resources Center, offers a supportive, friendly, and comfortable environment for both quiet study and one-on-one tutoring assistance. Students are welcome at the RWC throughout the semester. Students needing assistance with math, the sciences, accounting, or subject disciplines other than writing and reading should visit the Tutoring Center.


Our services include:

  • Drop-in assistance, from peer tutors and English instructors, for reading and writing assignments for any SJCC course

  • Scheduled appointments for tutoring

  • Resources for improving reading and writing skills, such as dictionaries, handbooks, and handouts on MLA and APA documentation & formatting, grammar, organization, proofreading, and more

  • Computers connected to the internet for school work (Canvas, writing, and research)

  • Assistance with university applications and personal statements

  • WST practice & preparation


Our RWC tutoring program has been certified by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA), for meeting professional standards in peer tutor training and skills.

All currently enrolled SJCC students can use the resources and assistance available in the Learning Resource Center's (LRC) tutoring areas throughout the semester; no referrals or fees are necessary.
