Academic Writing Centre

Welcome to the Woodsworth College Academic Writing Centre!

The Woodsworth College Academic Writing Centre offers one-on-one help with all aspects of writing in all subjects, at all stages of the writing process: understanding the assignment, developing a thesis and an argument, citing sources correctly, organizing, drafting, revising, and editing. 

We will coach you, prompting you to refine and clarify your thinking; we will teach you the skills you need to practice to become a better writer; we won’t tell you what to think or what to say, or edit or correct your work. 

We teach more than just writing! We can also help you improve other key academic skills: critical reading and thinking, lecture-listening, note-taking, making seminar presentations, preparing for tests and exams, and more.


There are three types of Writing Centre appointments:

  1. Face-to-face: held at Woodsworth College in room 100 (Please note: face-to-face appointments are on pause until the end of the 2022 Summer session);
  2. Online: synchronous, live-chat consultations;
  3. eTutoring: asynchronous, document-only appointments, without live chat.  

Booking an Appointment:

The Writing Centre is open throughout the summer session, but hours are limited. Appointments are available Monday through Thursday most weeks, and all appointments are taking place online.

"Every appointment at the Academic Writing Centre gives me a new perspective on my own writing. To think and write academically, I really needed guidance on how to build a strong thesis and develop my idea logically. Now I am not scared of essays, but actually enjoy writing them."
