What We Do:
The Reading/Writing Center is a free university service. Our purpose is to assist students and faculty with their reading and/or writing by having students meet one-on-one or in small groups with our tutors. We currently offer in-person tutorials only. You can find out more about our tutorials here. 

Who are these tutors?

Our tutors are all full-time BYU-Hawaii students.  They are nationally certified and trained to assist students with a wide range of reading and writing skills, including developing a thesis, improving grammar and vocabulary, and writing creative stories and memoirs. They are from a range of different majors and backgrounds, and are able to help your reading and writing needs. 


What else is at the Center?

We have a library with books organized according to reading level, and computers that you can use to work on homework, print assignments, etc. We have skills books, microlabs, and a big file drawer full of handouts regarding a variety of grammar principles.


To schedule an appointment:

If you’d like to meet with a tutor, you can schedule an appointment by walking into the Center and speaking with someone at the desk, or call us at (808) 675-3629.


If you don’t have an appointment:

You can simply walk in and ask if a tutor is available.  If all our tutors are busy, we have a waitlist.  If you need to see a tutor, but all tutors are busy, ask the tutor at the desk to put you on the waitlist. If a tutor finishes early, or a student misses their appointment, the next available tutor will see you.
