Writing Centre Tutoring Services

Whether you want to work on your thesis development, essay structure, research skills, or points of grammar, our Writing Tutors offer personalized instruction during one-on-one appointments.

At the Writing Centre, we can:

  • Help you start and develop your writing assignments.
  • Explain how to document, structure and format your writing assignments.
  • Guide you in the production of academic, business, and technical documents.
  • Show you how to review marked assignments and use them as learning tools.
  • Develop your grammar, punctuation, and spelling skills.
  • Guide you in the use of APA, MLA, and other citation styles.
  • Build your confidence when facing deadlines and due dates.
  • Show you how to proofread assignments before you submit them. We cannot however proofread completed assignments to be submitted.

Here is a testimonial from one of our students:

I am a student at Guelph-Humber. I just wanted to let you know that my Writing Tutor has been a lifesaver. English is my second language; I am not computer savvy and I have not been in school for the past twenty years. Therefore, without his knowledge and patience I do not know where I would be at this point.
