Small Group Sessions

Fragrance Free

In the Open Learning Centre, we maintain a fragrance free environment. Students wearing scented products (perfume, cologne, or even hand cream), may be unable to meet with a writing instructor.


Small group sessions consist of you working with as many as four other students and one ESL OLC language facilitator who will guide the group on language issues of common interest such as pronunciation, discussion skills, speaking, writing, listening, and/or reading. The maximum number of students who can sign up for a small group session is five but this depends on who signs up for a specific session.

We sometimes offer dedicated small group sessions for class-specific communication skills or specific language skills (e.g., classroom discussion skills or organizing an academic paper). Please note that small group sessions can be booked by students from the same class who wish to work with a facilitator on a specific assignment or group project.

Please note that our language facilitators are not able to edit student essays or assignments.

If there is specific topic for a small group session and a specific time/date that interests you, please contact us at
