C4W spring/summer term information


Hello C4W users!


We hope you’ve had a nice break between semesters, and that you are all safe and healthy!

The C4W tutors will continue to work remotely to provide writing support in the Spring and Summer 2022 semesters.


We will be open between May 10 and June 15 for spring, and between July 5 and August 10 for Summer. The Spring Live Tutoring schedule is now available for booking appointments, and the eTutoring schedule will be available starting on May 10. Please visit our website to learn more about Live Tutoring and eTutoring and refer to “C4W Online Tutoring: A Quick Guide” for detailed instructions.


Our Spring 2022 opening hours are:

  • Mondays: CLOSED
  • Tuesdays: 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. (MDT)
  • Wednesdays: 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. (MDT)

All appointments are booked through our scheduling system:


You can book up to TWO 30-minute long Live Tutoring appointments per week, and you can book two weeks in advance. Please note: You will be marked as a no-show if you are more than 5 minutes late to your Live Tutoring appointment. Your account will be disabled for the remainder of the term if you miss two appointments.


C4W Presents: The Super Awesome Grad Writing Café for Super Awesome Grad Writers (and Postdocs)

Are you having trouble making progress with your writing due to a hectic schedule, procrastination, feeling stuck, lack of motivation or any number of other reasons? Are you experiencing feelings of guilt or anxiety because you are not as productive as you would like to be? You are not alone. Writing is hard, and while nobody can do it for you, we can definitely create a space that allows you to show up for your writing on a regular basis. Join us every Tuesday morning at 9 am for a quick writing tip and goal-setting session followed by 90 minutes of dedicated writing time. Can’t make it for 9 am? Drop in anytime between 9 and 11 am; we will be there!
