Online Appointments (50 minutes)

Book an online appointment.

The RGASC offers two types of online appointments:

  • Online (Video/Chat) appointments that provide synchronous feedback
  • eTutoring (No Video/No Chat) appointments that provide asynchronous feedback

Online (Video/Chat) appointments are appropriate for students seeking support for writing, math and numeracy or study skills (e.g., time management, critical reading, exam preparation).

eTutoring (No Video/No Chat) are ideal for students seeking feedback on their writing.

How do I participate in an online appointment?

To book an appointment, log in to WCONLINE and use the pull-down menu to see the different types of appointments we offered (writing, math and numeracy, study skills). 

Online (Video/Chat) appointments are conducted via Zoom. You can upload your assignment instructions and your documents onto WCOnline. During the appointment, the instructor can work through your documents and provide you with support and feedback.

Instructions on how to navigate online sessions using Zoom can be found here: https://www.utm.utoronto.ca/asc/navigating-wconline-zoom-students-step-step-guide  

During an eTutoring (No Video/No Chat) appointment, you can upload your assignment instructions and writing onto WCOnline. The RGASC writing instructor will review your documents and provide written feedback, which will be uploaded back to WCOnline after your appointment time ends. If your documents are not uploaded to WCOnline prior to the start time of your appointment, it is considered a "No Show".  

eTutoring for math & numeracy and study skills appointments are not available.

*If you are booking a synchronous online appointment through WCONLINE, you should be aware that personal information can be inadvertently disclosed or captured through background noise and images/documents/photographs/belongings in the room.
