Tutoring

Tutoring consultations

These 45-minute, one-to-one consultations are tailored specifically to your needs: bring whatever it is you'd like to work on. You can book one appointment per week, Monday through Thursday, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Click here to book an appointment.

Daily drop-in

No appointment is necessary for drop-in, just come by during designated times. Drop-in is “first-come, first-served,” and the number of students may affect how much time we can spend with each person. Drop-in hours are Monday to Thursday, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Studio-learning appointments

These 40-minute consultations allow you to meet with a tutor in a campus studio or to bring your art and design projects to our centre. These meetings can bring some clarity to the studio choices you make and how you communicate them. Click here to book an appointment.

Thesis-student consultations

Students who have begun or who wish to begin thinking about their thesis-year projects are invited to work with us at any stage of the process. When booking or inquiring, please identify yourself as a thesis student. Click here to book an appointment.

Students with disabilities

Students with disabilities are welcome to use all our services, which we strive to make accessible to diverse student needs. If you are registered with the Centre for Students with Disabilities (CSD), you also have the option of requesting an accommodated appointment, which can include longer consultations (where possible), regular ongoing appointments with a consistent tutor and a personalized learning plan. To book an accommodated appointment, please consult with the CSD.
