What we do: The English Writing Clinic provides writing help in English to undergraduate and graduate students, and staff. In one-on-one 30 minute consultations, Language Centre teachers offer feedback and strategies to help you to develop your strengths and identify your weaknesses as a writer.

The Writing Clinic can help with—

  • Structuring academic essays and research papers
  • Focusing ideas and connecting thoughts at section, paragraph and sentence level, and strengthening your understanding of grammar, punctuation, and style
  • Utilizing the conventions appropriate for different types of texts, including letters and emails, CVs, memos, instructions, applications, reports, proposals, and presentations. proposals, and presentation slides
  • Finding self-study material to help you with any weaknesses identified
