The MCC-Maple Woods Reading & Writing Lab provides a welcoming, supportive environment where students can receive free, individualized assistance for a variety of needs. The Lab also provides a perfect place to study alone or with peers.
Our trained tutors and Learning Specialist offer assistance for writing essays and research papers for any course. We will not proofread or correct errors, but we will help you recognize errors in organization, grammar, citations, punctuation, and style, and we will teach students strategies to become a stronger writer and to create better papers.
Our Learning Specialist and tutors provide individualized instruction in reading and study strategies to help students improve comprehension and retention in most courses.
We provide tutoring for different content areas depending on the availability of tutors. Typically, we provide help for Psychology, Sociology, History, Philosophy, Speech, and Spanish. Because the availability of tutoring for specific content areas varies, appointments are required.
Appointments are suggested, but not required for one-on-one tutoring in reading or writing. One-on-one appointments may be scheduled for thirty minutes or one hour. Walk-in tutoring is also available with no time limit. During walk-in tutoring, students work independently, but our tutors and Learning Specialist are available to answer questions. Students who prefer an appointment may schedule an appointment by writing their name in the appointment book in the lab or by calling 816.604.3190.
Call 816.604.3190 for current hours of operation.
The Reading & Writing Lab is located in room 105 in the Humanities building.
