Summer session 2017
May 23-August 18
Who Can Use the Victoria College Writing Centre in the summer?
The following downtown college writing centres will be open during the summer: New College Writing Centre, Innis College Writing Centre, St. Michael's College Writing Centre, University College Writing Centre, Victoria College Writing Centre, and Woodsworth College Academic Writing Centre. Undergraduate students taking courses in the Faculty of Arts and Science on the St. George campus can book up to two appointments a week across these six centres. (This includes UTM and UTSC students, though only for work in St. George campus courses).
What we do:
The Writing Centre offers a tutorial service on an individual appointment basis. Each student receives individual help with a writing instructor. The session may last up to 50 minutes. The exact time allotment will be determined by the instructor.
Instructors help you develop your capacity to plan, organize, write and revise your essays, reviews, lab reports, case studies, and other academic papers. They will go over your work, and help you gain your own skills in writing, revising and editing. However, Instructors are not there to do your proofreading.
What you can do:
Book your appointment at least 2 weeks in advance. Students may sign up for one appointment per week.
TIP: If you are used to seeing the same writing instructor often, you might consider working with other writing instructors from time to time to help you get a different perspective.
If you need to cancel an appointment, please do so as soon as possible but at least 24 hours in advance. This will allow other students to get an appointment with an instructor sooner. Failing to cancel your appointment within the required time or simply not showing up to your scheduled appointment may result in you being blocked from booking further sessions. *
PLEASE NOTE: Blocks of appointments are released two weeks in advance.
Appointments normally start 10 minutes after the hour.
