Following the Quebec government’s decision to close all university campuses due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the McGill Writing Centre Tutorial Service will not be offering on-site appointments until further notice.
For the spring/summer 2020 semester, all tutoring will be conducted online via the Microsoft Teams platform. This application is available for free to students through Office 365. You will need to register for an appointment using your McGill email. Before you make your first appointment, we strongly recommend that you familiarize yourself with Microsoft Teams features.
For most students, appointments will be booked in the usual manner through the McGill Writing Centre’s online schedule: https://mwcschedule.mcgill.ca/. At the time of your appointment, your tutor will invite you to a Teams meeting for your session.
For MACES students, please arrange your appointment by sending an email to macestutorial.scs [at] mcgill.ca
For general inquiries about the tutorial service, please send an email to the coordinator at mwctutorial [at] mcgill.ca.
The McGill Writing Centre Tutorial Service provides writing support for all students at the downtown campus. Our tutors will work with you at any stage of the writing process, from outlining to final revision, providing guidance on how to:
- organize your ideas
- express yourself clearly
- make convincing arguments
- reach the right audience
- identify and eliminate common grammatical errors
Please note that the Tutorial Service is not a drop-off proofreading and editing service. Accordingly, tutors will not “correct” your draft assignments. Rather, tutors will model structurally and grammatically coherent sentences and paragraphs with a view to empowering you to learn how to write clear, concise, and engaging prose.
Consult the information on this page on how to book and prepare for your appointment, as well as for the tutorial service's cancellation policy. We look forward to working with you!
