Our Services

All RDC students are welcome in the Writing Skills Centre. It doesn't matter what program you're in or what your marks are. We can help you with:

  • Essay organization and structure
  • Research and planning
  • Developing a strong thesis statement
  • Grammar and punctuation
  • Any other issues related to writing

In order to become independent learners, students must be prepared to acquire many types of skills throughout their post-secondary educations. At the Writing Skills Centre, we focus upon helping students develop the writing skills they need in both an academic and professional setting. While our tutors cannot proofread your paper for you, they can teach you the skills you will need to proofread your own work. Those skills will stay with you for the rest of your life.
