The Academic Writing Centre, Room 214 in the new wing of the College, offers one-on-one help with all aspects of academic writing. You can come in at any stage of the writing process, from the starting point to the final draft, and you can bring the same paper in for several appointments if necessary. In a 45-minute session an experienced instructor will read your work-in-progress and help you understand the topic, develop an effective thesis, organize a strong argument, document your sources correctly, and improve your grammar, sentence structure, and punctuation.
We will also work with you on time management, lecture-listening and note-taking, studying and test-taking strategies, or any other academic skills that you want to improve. The portable documents on this page are examples of the many self-help handouts we offer; you’ll find many more on the main U of T Writing site.
Hours of Operation, Week of December 9th:
Click here to login to our online schedule and book an appointment. Appointment hours for the Winter term will be online later this week.
If you can't book an appointment at a time you want, you can come to the Centre and try for a drop-in during any of our operating hours. We can't guarantee that we'll be able to see you, but if you can wait a while (bring some reading!), we'll try to fit you in.
