The Writing and Reading Center, located in the Library and Learning Resources Center, offers all Oxnard College students free drop-in (no appointment needed) tutoring for any writing or reading assignment for any class at any stage in the process from planning to the final draft. All of our trained tutors and faculty can help with general writing questions, and each provides a friendly and supportive atmosphere for all students. We can help you improve skills such as brainstorming, understanding the assignment, writing thesis statements, organizing your ideas, reading comprehension, study skills, using accurate citations, improving sentence structure and grammar skills. Additionally, the tutors can help with other types of writing including personal statements for university applications, scholarship essays, resumes, and cover letters.

(Located on the first floor of the library.)
