Writing Centre

The Writing Centre provides free, high-quality peer tutoring to all John Abbott students who require assistance with their reading or writing assignments. Coordinated through the English Department, the Writing Tutors program trains over sixty students as peer tutors each term. Ultimately, our tutors aim to equip students with new strategies for each stage of the writing process, making them empowered readers and better writers on their own terms. With its focus on “students helping students” and its friendly and welcoming space in the basement of the library (L-023), The Writing Centre helps develop reading and writing skills in English across the programs and disciplines at John Abbott College.
