The Las Positas College RAW Center
The RAW Center provides reading and writing help from English and ESL instructors to all Las Positas College students. It is located in the same room as the Tutorial Center, Room 2401, in Office D Monday through Thursday and in the Library, Room 2000, on Fridays.
Waiting to meet with a tutor? Check out the online lessons and resources on everything from thesis statements and reading strategies to comma usage; visit our RAW Resouces page.
RAW Center Tutors can assist you with:
- Writing and reading assignments from any class
- Reading comprehension and strategies
- Essays: brainstorming, developing your ideas, organization, thesis statements, paragraph focus, and conclusions
- MLA and APA documentation and format
- Grammar, sentence structure, and punctuation
- Transfer and scholarship statements
NOTE: RAW Center Tutors do not offer a "proofreading service." Tutors will help you locate your errors, teach you how to fix them, and provide learning resources.
Bring the following for your visit to the RAW Center:
- A pen or pencil
- Your assignment with your professor’s instructions
- If you need help on a project/task other than a class assignment, please bring the materials and instructions that you will need to work on it
