Writing a research paper? Try SMOLworld, our interactive research essay guide.
St. Michael’s College Writing Centre
Instructors Steve Hoselton, Jordana Greenblatt, and Jaclyn Piudik
The Kelly Library has a Writing Centre for both undergraduate SMC students and graduate USMC Theology students.
A writing instructor can help with many aspects of academic writing: structure, clarity, cohesion, topic development and expression. We cannot edit or proofread your paper, but we can teach you the skills you need to do it yourself. You needn’t have a finished paper to come in. Please see us at any stage of the writing process. Sometimes just talking about your ideas helps to create focus.
Learning Strategist at St. Mike’s
Andrea and other learning strategists help students with all aspects of academic performance including time management, stress management, study strategies, writing, procrastination, critical reading and critical thinking. They can help you discover your best ways of learning, adapt to university work and expectations, increase your efficiency, identify and pursue your goals, improve your work, and get the most out of your academic learning experience.
