Graduate Writing

FGSR and the Student Success Centre have partnered to create a writing tutor program especially for graduate students. Graduate writing tutors are available free of charge to help you improve the written components of your thesis, your coursework papers, or your job or scholarship applications. While tutors are happy to discuss any of your writing concerns with you, they do not provide proofreading or copyediting services, and students are expected to participate in all tutoring sessions and perform their own edits.

Our tutors come from a variety of educational backgrounds and are available at different times based on their availability. You are encouraged to read their bios below and select the tutor whose expertise is closest to yours, though each is prepared to discuss work from a variety of disciplines.

Tutoring sessions last 55 minutes and students can attend a session one time per week. Appointments are best made 24 hours in advance, but you are welcome to drop in and see if a tutor is available to help you during the times listed on the schedule. Drop ins are first come, first served: if the tutor’s schedule for that day is full, they will let you know and you can use our booking system to book an appointment for another time. The Zoom ID for drop-ins is: 498 169 3784

Very few people can achieve great writing on their own. Why not get a second opinion?

Hi! I’m Holly. I’m a PhD Candidate in the department of Sociology and Social Studies, and am currently writing a dissertation on the social dimensions of climate change in central Saskatchewan. Specifically, my project explores themes such as social capital, adaptability, vulnerability, and the ways in which globalisation has shaped unique experiences in small prairie communities. My other academic interests include: qualitative research methods, social theory, gender and intersectionality, and turning social science research into something fun to read!
