Student Guide

The Hunter College RWC is a comprehensive service for the entire college community, offering tutorial services in critical reading, academic writing, and the writing process to all students of the college.

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

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

  • Book an appointment to work with a tutor. We offer three types of appointments:
    • In-person live tutoring at the RWC
    • Live online tutoring over video
    • Asynchronous e-tutoring where you can submit your papers electronically and get timely feedback
  • All three types of appointment are approximately 50 minutes in length, and all can be booked from our scheduling website at
  • Register for a regular appointment to meet with the same tutor on a weekly basis. You can choose to meet in person or online. You can find the application on our website at
  • 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.

You will benefit the most if you use the RWC 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.

For more information, email us at, or visit the RWC in the Silverstein Student Success Center on the 7th floor of the Cooperman Library.
