Writing Tutor Support for Graduate Students

The Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences is partnering with the Academic Learning Centre (ALC) this winter to provide a writing tutor service for FAFS graduate students.

The tutor is a graduate student with a strong background in writing at the graduate level. They have participated in training offered through the ALC and have experience working one-to-one with students on their writing.

The tutor will work in Study Room 232A in the William R. Newman (FAFS) Library on Tuesdays from 2:00-4:00pm and Fridays from 10:00-11:00pm, beginning January 17. Students can meet with the tutor in one-hour appointments to discuss their writing and receive reader-based feedback on drafts of papers for courses, research proposals, or chapters in their theses.
