Appointment Delivery Methods

One on One Appointments

In-person appointments are held at the RGASC (MN 3251). 

Our instructors meet with you in person at the RGASC to offer instruction in the various forms of academic writing and math and numeracy. Bring your work-in-progress from any course you are taking and we will work with you at any stage in its development.

NOTE: If you wish to discuss a specific assignment or essay during an appointment:

  • You MUST bring your assignment instructions.
  • Please bring a printed hard copy of the assignment instructions and your work in progress or questions, as it allows the instructor to provide feedback more clearly. We cannot view work on mobile phones or tablets.
