You can make an appointment with a writing tutor using King's Libcal link. Contact Leonard.Fehr@kingsu.ca if you have any questions, or drop by the Writing Centre to discuss how we can help.

Group Tutoring

Group tutoring is offered by the Biology, Chemistry, and Math departments. Work through assignments or specific problems with the help of your peers and instructors!

Academic Support Assistants

Academic Support Assistants are senior students who work to help their peers hone study techniques, work on time management skills, and manage assignments and projects. They do their best to help their peers succeed, but are not tutors. Appointments with an ASA are available using King's Libcal link, or you can email academic.support@kingsu.ca for more information.
