Writing & Reading Center

Welcome to the Oxbridge Academy Writing and Reading Center (WRC), the only high school peer-to-peer tutoring center in the South Florida region.
 

At the WRC, you will find resources to assist you with your class assignments and opportunities to participate in workshops and community events. You can even learn how to become a tutor. Tutoring appointments are only available to Oxbridge students.

Our Mission

The WRC is a student-centered program in which students tutor students. Our goal is to improve and celebrate all aspects of literacy and communication across the curriculum. We encourage students to seek assistance on any writing or reading assignment at any level and at any point in the creation process. Our center believes in writing, thinking, and reading as a creative and multi-step process, and through academic discourse, we encourage students to work, reflect, and grow as effective and confident communicators.
 

Our Philosophy

We have modeled our center on those that currently exist at almost every American college or university. We are the only high school in the region with a writing center. Every semester, a group of students are trained via an elective course called Peer Tutoring. While in the center, Peer tutors engage with writers for thirty-minute sessions with the intention not only of creating better writing, but of creating better writers.
 

Before opening the WRC, we consulted with Dr. Jenn Wells, whose writing program at New College of Florida provided the model for both our center and the tutor-training program.
