CAWS Center for Academic Writing Success


The Center for Academic Writing Success serves as a resource for all students. Our primary goal is to help students develop their own academic skills -- seeing more in essays, rethinking and revising papers, or identifying and correcting their own mistakes in writing.

We base our philosophy and approach to tutoring on an understanding of language development as an activity of critical reading, writing, and thinking.

CAWS offers a variety of free tutoring. This includes:

  • Walk-in tutoring for essay writing in a variety of subjects
  • One-on-one tutoring, scheduled with an individual tutor for the entire semester
  • Reading and Writing workshops for students taking the CUNY ACT-R and CAT-W exams
  • Grammar workshops


The Center only services currently registered KCC students and KCC Continuing Ed. students.
