Student Guide

The Hunter College RWC is a comprehensive service for the entire college community, offering tutorial assistance and academic support to all registered students of the college.

RWC tutors are undergraduate and graduate students from a variety of majors, trained to help you develop your critical reading and academic writing skills. Tutors will not interpret texts for you, nor write, type, or correct papers. Tutors will help you develop a reading-writing process you can use to improve your skills and negotiate the requirements of academic reading and writing.

As a student, you may use the Center in several ways:

  • Register for a regular appointment to meet with the same tutor on a weekly basis throughout the whole semester. In some cases, you will be paired with another student who is enrolled in the same course. Regular tutoring sessions are 50 minutes in length.
  • Drop in to work with a tutor during scheduled drop-in hours when tutors are available to meet with you on a first-come, first-served basis. Drop-in sessions typically run for 25 minutes.
  • Attend workshops at the Center on various aspects of critical reading and academic writing. Workshop topics and schedules are posted periodically throughout each semester at the Center and on our website:
  • Access our handouts on a variety of topics, including critical reading and note-taking, developing a thesis, organizational strategies, working with sources, citation styles, grammar and mechanics, and writing across the curriculum. You can pick up a copy of any of our handouts at the Center or you can download them from our website.
  • Use e-tutor to submit papers electronically and get feedback by 12pm the day after the appointment.

You will benefit the most if you use the Center at each stage of your writing process. Work with a tutor to clarify an assignment, to generate material, to review a draft for organization and development, and to learn how to proofread.

The RWC is located on the 7th floor of the library, in the Silverstein Student Success Center, and online at
