All students can access free drop-in tutoring at the Writing Help Centre (Murray 142). Students can also receive free online writing help. In addition to tutoring, there are many other ways to get help with writing.

Note: Tutors cannot edit or proofread (i.e., correct the grammar and punctuation) your paper. They can teach you about writing, though, using your work as an example of writing issues you may need to work on.  We cannot edit or proofread theses or dissertations.


The Writing Help Centre offers a number of workshops between September and April of each year, including workshops for graduate students. We also host "Get It Done!" sessions, where students can come to work for three hours on a paper, while sustained with few snacks and some support from tutors. Check our workshop listings for fall and winter offerings.

To request handouts, slides, or recordings, please email the Writing Help Coordinator.
