Hours of Operation
Monday to Friday:
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
COVID-19 UPDATE: The Writing Centre is still available to students; we are closed to all in-person meetings, but are still available for online and eTutor appointments. The two formats are both conducted via the internet but are slightly different:
Online appointments (which show up in pink on the schedule) require access to the internet for the duration of the appointment. Five minutes before the appointment time, the student should click on their appointment, then click on the online link, and a window opens allowing the student to post or upload text to the main window. The tutor will join the conversation, and the tutor and student can then instant message back and forth on the right-hand side of the window, as well as add/remove additional comments or text in the main window. Video and audio can also be added if both parties enable this on their devices and if the internet speed is fast enough.
ETutor appointments (which show up in green on the schedule) allow students to post files to their appointment on our online schedule; the tutor will then add comments to the file and email them back to the student. This is not as ideal as the back-and-forth of the instant messaging or audio/video option with online appointments (above). If mutually agreed upon, the tutor and student may want to connect via phone call to allow for conversation. If you wish to be contacted by phone, please add your phone number to your appointment under "additional information."
We hope these options will work for you. We plan to continue to offer support to students for the rest of the semester.
