How the Academic Learning Centre can help you

Basic editing and organization of assignments

Need a fresh set of eyes on an assignment? We’re not an editing service and we will not catch or identify all your errors. We’ll guide you through basic editing, sentence structure, and watch for repeated grammatical errors. This process helps you to avoid simple mistakes, ensure your paragraphs make sense, and improve your writing skills.  

Preparation and planning of assignments

Before you begin your essay or project, make sure you understand the requirements and create a plan for a well-organized and well-supported paper. We can help get you started on the right track.

APA, MLA, and Chicago formatting, citations, and references

Different courses and subject fields have different requirements when it comes to following style guides. We can help you find the correct guide and navigate the rules for formatting, citations, and reference pages.

Content specific support and study groups

Having difficulty understanding your class materials? We’ll work through them together so you leave with a better grasp of the information at hand. Stressed out by a big test? We’ll help you come up with a strategy to study efficiently and effectively. We can also schedule and guide group study sessions as needed.

Skills workshops

Watch your inbox for announcements on upcoming Skills & Strategies Workshops. We offer workshops in writing, reading, time management, test anxiety, and more.
