Welcome to the WRC!

We offer tutoring in writing and reading to all De Anza College students for any class on campus--EWRT, READ, ESL, LART or any course with a writing assignment! Tutoring takes place in half-hour, drop-in sessions or through scheduled, weekly individual appointments.

A tutor helps a student through the writing process.


Drop-in Tutoring

Drop-in tutoring is available during all hours of operation, every quarter. The time limit for drop-in tutoring is 30 minutes per session, 2 sessions per day. No application or appointment is needed for drop-in tutoring. Just sign in using your CWID for first-come, first-served tutoring.

Weekly Individual Tutoring (WIT)

Weekly Individual Tutoring appointments are available in fall, winter, and spring quarter (Sorry, appointments are not available for the summer quarter). You and your tutor will meet in the WRC once or twice a week, one hour for each writing/reading course. During this time, you can work on areas and topics that you need help with and learn strategies to help you study the subject better on your own. Depending on tutor availability and budget constraints, we may not be able to provide a Weekly Individual Tutor for each student who requests one, but we will do our best. It helps to apply early in the quarter.

  • EWRT 200, READ 200, or LART 200
