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.
Face-to-Face and Online appointments throughout the summer are available for booking now. Click here to login!
Drop-ins are available anytime during Face-to-Face hours, 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. You'll see the current week's Face-to-Face hours on the Welcome page that opens when you log into our booking system.
