Mission Statement for The Writing Studio
The Writing Studio at Rowan College of South Jersey helps students improve their writing across disciplines and genres. We parallel the College’s larger mission of promoting “intellectual and cultural enrichment, individual achievement and professional development.” To that end, The Writing Studio seeks to demystify the writing process and empower student writers to develop effective strategies for any writing situation. We strive to help create a campus culture in which student learning continues beyond the classroom.
The Writing Studio maintains a staff of writing coaches who help students communicate effectively in their writing.
Students may submit a writing assignment through our Ask a Tutor form.
Also, students needing writing assistance over the weekends or after hours, can visit ThinkingStorm. ThinkingStorm is our 24/7 professional online tutoring service. To access ThinkingStorm, log into your RCSJ Portal. On the My Campus page, click on "Online Tutoring (ThinkingStorm)" in either My Application or Campus Links boxes. You will then be directed to the ThinkingStorm's menu of services.
Students can make a Tutoring appointment by clicking here: https://tutortrac.rcgc.edu/. The Academic Support Center (ASC) provides in-person tutoring and live tutoring through Zoom. To access a virtual tutoring appointment through Tutortrac, sign back in and a link for the session will appear next to your appointment prior to the start of the session.
