Tutorial Service

We have pivoted so we can continue to offer a high-quality tutoring experience online! We are no longer physically on campus - but we have shifted our operations entirely online in accordance with government directives. Flexible hours, slots in the evenings and on weekends, we are here for you.

We are committed to providing a barrier-free experience. If you have any accessibility needs, please let us know by emailing the MWC Tutorial Service Coordinator (mwctutorial [at] mcgill.ca).

For the 2020-2021 academic year, 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 McGill's Association of Continuing Education students (MACES), you can book from our regular online schedule or 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!
