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.
The Academic Writing Centre will be closed until the week of September 21st. Online booking for Fall Term appointments will be available once classes begin the week of September 14th.
