The Academic Success Center Writing Studio, located in the Bart Luedeke Center, Suite 237, provides free individual and small-group tutoring for writing, reading comprehension, study strategies, and English Language Learners (ELL). In addition, we offer writing and study strategy workshops in the Studio, in classrooms, and at outreach locations. For some writing-intensive courses, the Writing Studio provides Embedded Tutors, who serve as liaisons between the course and other staff.
The Writing Studio is staffed by highly trained professional and peer tutors. Our Professional Tutors must have at least a bachelor’s degree though many have advanced degrees and experience as instructors at Rider. In addition to tutoring, they lead training sessions for our Student Writing Tutors. These Student Writing Tutors are highly qualified undergraduates who are specially trained to help students with the writing process. Many of the student writing tutors have successfully completed a semester-long course, Theories of Writing and Tutoring, and all of our tutors attend training before they can begin tutoring.
To make an appointment for assistance with writing, reading, study strategies, and/or ESL, please call 609-896-5008.
