The Reading and Writing Center

The Reading and Writing Center at Cuyamaca College offers learning assistance in writing, reading, ESL, research, paper formatting, and other communication arts skills. At the Center, you can get friendly, personal tutoring help with your course work or take a variety of mini-courses to supplement your regular college curriculum.

We are open to students at all levels--beginning to advanced.

Mondays through Thursdays 9am-5pm
Fridays 9am-noon
(after the first three weeks of the term)

The Center is located on the ground floor of the East Wing of the Communication Arts Building, in B-167. You may take advantage of this service in person or via e-mail; write Mary Graham.

To use the Reading and Writing Center you must enroll every term in a one-unit, no-credit course, entirely free of charge. Ask at the information desk in the center how to do this. Then be sure to log in every time you visit and log out when you complete your session.
