Welcome to the Reading and Writing Center

The Reading and Writing Center (RWC) helps current and former RCC students to become stronger readers and writers. Students may come to the RWC for assistance with reading and writing assignments from any course. The staff of the RWC is also happy to assist with personal reading and writing tasks such as letters, transfer essays, and creative writing. Drop in any time during the hours that we are open to make an appointment or to ask a question, or call us at 845-574-4790.

NEW! Check out our "FAQs and Resources" page to find helpful handouts on all aspects of the writing process, and links to other useful sites.

Spring 2020 
Reading and Writing Center Schedule

With the suspension of in-person classes following spring break and mounting concerns regarding COVID-19, the RCC Reading and Writing Center (RWC) will also be modifying how it works with students for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester. With that said, students wishing to utilize the RWC services should continue to make appointments via TutorTrac as they normally would, however starting on Monday March 30th, we will conduct sessions virtually in one of three ways:

  1. Students will have the option to email a Word Doc or Google doc to the tutor via their SUNY Rockland email address or they can email the RWC (writing@sunyrockland.edu). As always, please keep in mind that this will not be a proofreading service, but rather tutors will return papers with constructive comments in an effort to help individuals improve their writing.
  2. Students can "live edit" with a tutor via Google Docs or Microsoft Word by sharing the document with the tutor directly. That way, they can ask clarification questions and have a dialogue about the work at hand.
  3. Students can meet virtually with a tutor via Google Hangouts or Skype if they have the ability to do so. These platforms support audio and/ or visual, so they can speak over the phone or by video chat.

While these methods may not be ideal for everyone, we believe they are the best way for us to move forward at this time. Anyone wishing to schedule a virtual session should make an appointment on TutorTrac as they normally would, and the tutor will reach out to them via email to find out which method works best.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the RWC at writing@sunyroockland.edu.
