Scheduled Sessions and Drop-Ins

As a Tyndale student, you can request 1 hour-long appointment per week pending tutor availability. A second appointment may be requested for the same week, but will be marked as tentative and may be reassigned at any time to a student who has not yet received an appointment for that week. You can schedule an appointment online, drop by and speak to a member of our staff, or call our office to schedule a session.

We do our best to accommodate drop-in visits.  To guarantee your session, however, and to allow yourself adequate time for revision, we encourage you to plan ahead and book well in advance of paper deadlines.

Our qualified upper-year undergraduate and seminary tutors are trained to work with students in all disciplines. We want to help you learn to write better, so we will work side-by-side with you and teach you what to look for to strengthen your writing. Feel free to bring an assignment at any stage of the process and we can help you to begin, organize, develop, or polish your writing. If you prefer to work with a particular tutor, you are welcome to schedule your appointments accordingly.

The Writing and Tutoring Services team strives to cultivate professional and respectful relationships with the users of our services.  To help facilitate this goal, we hold you to the following standards of courtesy: 

  • Please be punctual. If you do not arrive within the first 10 minutes of your scheduled appointment, we may reassign your session to another student.
  • If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please make every effort to notify us at least 24 hours in advance. With the exception of unforseen illnesses or emergencies, students who arrive late, cancel, or skip appointments without sufficient notice may be ineligible for further writing support.
  • Please endeavour to treat each member of our team with respect. Access to these services is a privilege and this privilege may be revoked if serious or repeated behavioural concerns are identified.

Should you have any questions about these policies or about our services, please contact the lbalsamo [at] tyndale [dot] ca (Learning Specialist, Lina Balsamo).
