Reading and Writing Center
The Ventura College Reading and Writing Center is located in the Learning Center LRC-155 and assists students at all levels in acquiring the foundational skills they need to improve their
i.) reading strategies,
ii.) grammatical and rhetorical accuracy in academic writing, and
iii.) confidence as learners.
The center's purpose is to support classroom instruction by offering students free, one-on-one faculty workshops, trained peer tutoring, and directed learning activities as a way to reinforce skills expected of students in college courses.
In its initial phase, the center offered course-specific help to reading students and students taking English however, now we are open to students in courses across the curriculum. We invite you to visit and sign up to work with a faculty member, peer tutor, and/or counselor in a setting that is friendly and supportive of your growth as a student. Your work will be kept on file so your instructor can keep track of your effort throughout the semester.
Hours: 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Monday-Thursday
