The Reading Writing Center provides daily one-on-one 30-minute long tutorials to assist your students with their reading or writing assignments. Our tutors have diverse backgrounds, are heading to diverse fields, and have experience with multiple types of coursework and assignments. The purpose of our tutorials isn't solely to assist with students enrolled in the EIL or English programs who are struggling with grammar. Instead, we aim to provide students with a free on-campus resource to help with every aspect of reading or writing. From the beginning EIL student needing help with their sentence structure through the senior research papers that need to perfect their argument, our tutors are available to help your students.
Throughout the semester, tutors will host workshops on various aspects of writing. These workshops include topics such as grammar, writing a strong thesis statement, organizing a research paper, citing sources, etc. All students are invited to attend, no matter what class or major is involved. Workshops are generally taught in McKay 101. Times and dates will vary with each semester.
In class workshops are also offered. If instructors would like tutors to host an in class workshop, then they will need to contact the Assistant Director at least two weeks in advance. Tutors may or may not be available at the specified time. In class workshops can be catered to the topic of the course or instructors may choose topics from the workshops offered for that semester. Instructors may contact the Assistant Coordinator through e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or through phone at (808) 675-3629.
The lab program is a semester long program that is intended to help your student improve a specific area of writing throughout the entirety of the semester. The purpose is to learn how to write acceptable in and out of class essays and utilize available resources to identify and overcome writing problems. Our labs are focused on writing, not grammar. Therefore, the lab program is writing intensive.
ENG 101, 201, or 315 instructors may enroll students into the lab program if they feel their students could benefit from it. It is open for enrollment and registration within the first few weeks of the semester. If instructors would like to enroll any of their students, they should contact the Assistant Director for the proper form. This form will be used to track assignments, enrollment, and completion, and will require your signature and approval for several of these steps.
