Book a Tutoring Appointment
Academic Success Centre has face-to-face and online tutoring appointments. The ASC has an Abbotsford and Chilliwack location for face-to-face tutoring appointments and all online appointments are held on the Blackboard Collaborate platform. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll set up an appointment for you!
Are you trying to book an appointment but you can't find a tutor in your discipline of study? Email us--we will try to find a tutor who can help. If you want help with writing, then any of our tutors with writing specialty listed in their bio can help you.

PLEASE NOTE that tutors at the Academic Success Centre do not provide support for students during or about their exams.
PLEASE NOTE: Appointments requested by email are monitored during regular office hours (Mon-Fri 8:30-4:30). Please make sure that your email message includes your name, student number, phone number, and details of your request or question; we prefer that you book using your UFV student email address.
Our Commitment to Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion
The community of UFV has identified inclusivity as one of our core values. We welcome everyone and show consideration and respect for all experiences and ideas. In 2017, we, along with other Canadian universities, committed to implementing seven inclusive excellence principles to advance equity, diversity, and inclusion. These principles include a commitment to develop an action plan and to integrating equity, diversity, and inclusivity into all that we do.
ASC Peer tutors offer advice that can apply to your own work; they do not create content or edit/proofread extensively. Their goal is always to help you develop and refine skills that you can use beyond the immediate consultation. They can help you with understanding course content, preparing for quizzes and exams, developing essays and other written work (including citation styles), and applying strong study skills.
(Please note that the following does not apply while we are operating from remote locations with tutoring only online; once we are back on campus, there will be options for the quiet room and privacy.) Appointments are private and confidential. At our Abbotsford location, we have a private office space in addition to our main tutoring room. If your session is on a sensitive topic or if you would feel more confident working away from others, after booking your appointment, please contact our office to request that your appointment be in the private room.
Scheduled appointments are 15 to 45 minutes long with a maximum of one per day. However, if you need another appointment AND there is an open appointment spot, we will try to accommodate your request. Please bring your instructor’s guidelines and a printed copy of your assignment.
