The Academic Learning Centre writing, content, and study skills tutors are available for online tutoring or video conferencing via Cisco WebEx. Make an appointment for individual tutoring here: manitoba.mywconline.com
To make a tutoring appointment:
Writing tutoring: Undergraduate students should use the Elizabeth Dafoe Library, St. John's College Library, Tier, or Migizii Agamik schedules. Graduate students may use any schedule, but might prefer to submit their paper to a tutor in the Tier Building or Migizii Agamik schedules.
Students in History, Labour Studies, and Religion courses as well as graduate students in Education and Agricultural and Food Sciences can use their designated schedules.
Students must upload their paper as a Word accessible file (.rtf, .doc, or .docx) along with their assignment guidelines/instructions before the scheduled time of their appointment. Here are the instructions to upload your documents (PDF).
The writing tutor will review the paper at the time of the appointment and re-attach the file, with comments, to the appointment. Students should also receive a copy of their paper (renamed "Access") in an email with the subject "New File Available: University of Manitoba Academic Learning Centre."
Content and study skills tutoring: Students should make appointments on the Migizii Agamik schedule for content and study skills tutoring. For content tutoring, students should click on an empty (white) space to read the tutors' biographies and find a tutor who provides tutoring in the desired course. All ALC tutors at Migizii Agamik can provide study skills tutoring.
Video Conferencing with Content/Study skills tutors: Students can make an appointment with the tutor in the Migizii Agamik schedule as usual. At the start of the appointment, the tutor will send the student a link to a Cisco WebEx conference. Clicking on that link will take the student to the WebEx online meeting. Students do not need a Cisco WebEx account to join a meeting, but we strongly encourage students to register and familiarize themselves with this platform, as it is the one used in most UMLearn courses. Students need to have access to a device (phone, laptop, Ipad, etc.) with video and audio capability.
English as an additional language (EAL) support: Make an appointment with Antoanela in the Migizii Agamik schedule.
Number of appointments per week: Students can access a maximum of 1 hour of tutoring in a week (either two 30-minute appointments OR one 60-minute appointment, depending on appointment type).
Take-home tests and exams: Tutors need your instructor’s written permission before they can work with you on a take-home test or exam.
Email address: Students must use their UM or ICM email address to register and login to WCOnline.For help: Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
