What We Do

The Academic Success Centre offers one-on-one feedback on the writing that you are doing for your UFV courses and on your subject-area content. 

Writing assistance

Peer Tutors can assist you in understanding various writing assignments, such as research essays and reports, annotated bibliographies, literature reviews, lab reports, critical reviews, resumes, and application and cover letters.

We can assist you at various stages of your writing process with, for example, understanding your assignment requirements, narrowing topics, identifying research strategies, developing ideas, organizing material, drafting, and revising.

We do not proofread your written work; rather, we offer advice that you can apply to your writing. 

Subject-area assistance

You will be able to request help from Peer Tutors in a range of subject-area specialities. Please check back as we update our website to include more detail about this. If you need some assistance in a subject area sooner than that, please call us at 605-504-4282 to arrange an appointment. 

Summer 2015: We offer subject-area support in Chemistry, Psychology (101, 102), Business, Accounting, Kinesiology, Biology, Criminology, English, and more!

How to book a consultation appointment

Visit the Book an Appointment section of our website or drop in and we will get you started in the system.

Consultation guidelines

Consultations are private and confidential.

Students have access to ninety minutes of consultations per week and normally cannot make two appointments on the same day. However, if you need another appointment AND there is an unbooked appointment spot, we will try to accomodate your request.

Please bring your instructor’s guidelines and a printed copy of your assignment (You can also print in the Academic Success Centre if you have a scheduled appointment).

I have plenty of experience in tutor-related positions, both as a one-on-one tutor and as an SLG leader here at UFV. I am a fourth-year business student, so I have taken many courses in the degree and can help you with them.
