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 April 21, 2014:
We're into the exam period now, so our hours are limited, but we are still open and will be throughout the Spring and Summer terms. Appointments from May through August will be available for booking soon.
Drop-ins are available whenever the Centre is open, but these depend on other students missing their appointments or canceling at the last minute; they're not guaranteed, in other words, but if you can wait for a while (bring some reading!), we'll try to fit you in.
