The Writing Centre

Writing Consultations

The Writing Centre is a free service that provides one-on-one writing consultations for assignments in any course or program. It also offers tutoring for English courses.

Writing Centre appointments can now be booked in Online Services. More details instructions are available here.

If you missed the 24-hour cutoff for booking an appointment or have a last minute question, check here to see if there are drop-in sessions available today.

How we can help

The Writing Centre can help with a range of writing and English skills at any stage of your assignment or program, such as:

  • Analyzing literature
  • Developing a strong thesis statement
  • Structuring your essay
  • Supporting your argument with appropriate evidence
  • Questions about grammar
  • Citing your resources (APA, MLA, etc.)

Please note that the Writing Centre is subject to the terms of academic honesty as outlined in Section 9.2.5 of the Academic Calendar. As such, we will not correct your papers or tell you what to write. Instead, we will help you develop skills to improve your own writing.
