Book an Appointment

Students can book one 30-minute appointment per day, two times a week. Drop-in appointments are welcome; however, the Writing Centre is often busy, so we encourage students to make an appointment at least a few days before their assignment is due to ensure they receive the support they need.Book an Appointment
Preparing for an appointment
Please bring the assignment from your professor, some questions and ideas, and your draft (if you have one).
During your tutoring session, the tutor will indicate any gaps or problems in your writing, teach you how to improve your writing through mini-lessons, model the writing process, and provide tips to strengthen your writing skills.
The goal of a session is to help students become better, more confident writers — tutors are trained to teach, not edit.
We do not help with take-home exams unless we have consent from the instructor.
TRU is a scent-reduced environment. Due to extreme sensitivities experienced by some staff and students, we ask that you reduce the scented personal-care products you wear to the Writing Centre.
