Make an Appointment
If you have any technical difficulties with the link, please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help!
We currently offer three types of appointments:
In-person or Video Appointments (synchronous appointments)
Meet one-to-one with a tutor or advisor to discuss your paper and receive feedback. We recommend a one-to-one appointments the first time you come so we can get to know you and your writing style!
Online Review Appointments
A tutor or advisor who will read through your paper and make suggestions and offer feedback in the margins. We will email your paper back to you within 48 weekday hours (sooner when possible), so factor this time into your assignment planning.
Note: You don’t need to have a finished document to receive feedback. We will review or discuss documents at any point in their creation, including how to get started or getting some help understanding assignment guidelines and expectations.
The Daily Drop-in (10:00AM-11:00AM Atlantic time in Killam G40) offers students the opportunity to have a short, synchronous conversation with a writing tutor without pre-booking an appointment. Sessions are assigned on a first-come/first-served basis. For quick questions outside of these times, please email email@example.com and we would be happy to set up a chat!
Self-disclosure and confidentiality at the Writing Centre
Academic assignments, course progress, and matters of a personal nature are kept confidential in Student Affairs (the Writing Centre is one student support unit within Student Affairs). Your discussion will be considered confidential with three exceptions:
- When an advisor, coach or tutor believes that you may be at risk of harm to yourself or someone else;
- When an advisor, coach or tutor becomes aware that a crime has been committed; or
- When you communicate or do something that is a violation of university policy.
We take your well-being, the well-being of our community members, and your right to privacy seriously.
