The Writing, Reading, and Tutoring Center (WRTC) is dedicated to the development and fostering of Oxnard College students’ compositional skills. The “Short Responses” and “Paper” submission is for tutorial feedback and should not be mistaken for an editorial service. The goal is to help guide students to develop metacognitive awareness and self-correcting strategies within their individual writing style.
