Online Appointments for Undergrads
Western Undergrads can book a free 50-minute one-to-one Zoom appointment with a writing advisor. You book the appointment through Western Connect. We email the Zoom invitation to your Western (@uwo.ca) email address.
Our writing advisors will review any academic writing assignment, in any genre, across the disciplines. We will also help with CVs, resumes, personal statements, applications, and more. Our writing advisors will provide useful and informed feedback whatever your stage in the writing process. Keep in mind, we are not an editing service. Our goal is to help you become a better writer and communicator.
The Writing Support Centre will not review any exams (including take-home exams or comprehensive examinations).
To book your ZOOM APPOINTMENT with a writing advisor:
- Login to Western Connect
- Choose Writing Support Centre on your Dashboard
- Choose Appointment Calendar and then View Calendar
- Choose an Open time slot from the calendar and book your Zoom appointment.

Cancellations: If for any reason you are unable to attend your appointment, please be considerate of your fellow students and cancel your appointment from Western Connect so another student can make use of your appointment time. Cancellations are not possible within 8 hours of your appointment time. Students who fail to attend their appointment are listed as a No-Show, which can limit future access to our services.
Due to demand for our one-to-one appointments students are limited to booking one appointment at a time.
If you do not see an open appointment, we are fully booked. Please book ahead or check back for cancellations. If you cannot find an open appointment time, please let us know!
When accessing Zoom, please note the distinction between your Western password used with your User ID to log onto your Western Zoom account, and the six-digit Zoom passcode required to join the actual Zoom session. Your Zoom passcode is included in your Zoom invitation.
If you encounter any problems connecting with us for your Zoom appointment, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Western Technology Services has instructions for setting up and using a Western Zoom account.
If you have comments or suggestions, please fill out our Writing Support Centre Appointment Survey. Let us know how we are doing. Thanks!
