Make an Appointment
IN-PERSON & ONLINE HOURS: Monday to Friday 10AM to 4PM
ADDITIONAL ONLINE HOURS: Monday to Thursday until 6PM
We offer three types of appointments:
Meet with one of our tutors or advisors at the Killam Library Learning Commons, Room G40D and receive face-to-face feedback.
Online Review Appointments:
Send us your document, assignment details and guidelines, and Intake Form to email@example.com, and you will be matched with a tutor or advisor who will read through your document and make suggestions and offer feedback in the margins. We will then email your document back to you. We will return your assignment within 48 weekday hours (sooner where possible), so build this extra time into your time management plan for your assignments.
Meet with one of our tutors or advisors online and receive "face-to-face" feedback. On your Intake Form, please indicate that you would like a video appointment and offer a few times that fit your schedule, and send it, your document, and your assignment details and guidelines to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then send you a video link for the scheduled appointment.
Note: You don’t need to send a finished paper to receive feedback. We will review or discuss papers at any point in their creation, including how to get started or getting some help understanding assignment guidelines and expectations.
Have a quick question about structure, grammar, understanding your assignment details, citation or any other writing issue? Have a deadline coming up and want another set of eyes on your draft? The Writing Centre’s Synchronous Daily Drop-in sessions may be just what you need. Held every week day from 1:00-2:00PM (Atlantic Time) the Daily Drop-in 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.

Writing Centre appointment maximums
Generally, in order to allow as many students as possible to make use of the Writing Centre, we limit the number of appointments each student may make to two per week. There is no set limit on appointments per semester; however, if a student is approaching 10 to 12 appointments in a semester, we have an assessment appointment with the student to evaluate how many more appointments may be needed. If you have questions about these policies, please send us an email.
Self-disclosure and confidentiality at the Writing Centre
Academic assignments, course progress, and matters of a personal and private nature are kept confidential in Student Affairs (the Writing Centre is an academic unit of 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.
