Writing & Language Support

There are two options for our TRSM students to access writing and language support through the virtual writers' cafe and 1-on-1 appointments facilitated by our Writing Specialist, Asher Ghaffar who is an award-winning writer and scholar with 10+ years of experience working in higher education.

TRSM Weekly Virtual Writers’ Café | Weekly on Mondays and Wednesdays

The Virtual Writers’ Café runs weekly on Mondays from 10:30 a.m. - 12 p.m .and Wednesdays from 12-1:30 p.m. During the 1.5-hour virtual session, students get assistance on their written assignments and have a space to write. Sessions will begin with a writing tip and an informal question & answer session. Scroll down to register for the upcoming sessions below.

1-on-1 Writing Specialist Appointment

Students can access 30-minute one-on-one writing appointments to get support on any of the following topics: understanding an assignment, building academic vocabulary, generating ideas, structuring a paper, understanding business writing genres, revising for sentence-level issues, citation styles and referencing

To get the most out of the session, come prepared by bringing the assignment question, and any completed writing.

Our No-Show Policy: As a Ted Rogers School student, we prepare you for the industry and that includes your level of professionalism as a business student. Our No-Show Policy means if you register for a session you are 100% committed to attending. If you sign up and do not attend three sessions without cancelling at least 24 hours in advance, you will no longer be able to attend our future events as you are also taking away a spot from another student until you meet with our management team. 

Guidelines for Student Consultations

How many appointments can I attend each week?

TRSM undergraduate students can attend one 30-minute appointment per week to make it more accessible to other students.

Can you edit my assignment or thesis? 

Although we are not an editing service, we will help you to become better editors of your own work. 

Can you help me with a take-home test or exam?

We cannot assist you with written take-home tests as this would constitute a breach of Policy 60: Academic Integrity. For more information, please visit the Academic Integrity website. Please review the procedures for TMU Senate Policy 60: Academic Integrity.
