Assistance with writing, studying, and time management on Saturdays? You bet!

Published by Mark Bodnar

Do you need academic writing, study strategies, or time management help this term but are off campus during the week? Maybe you're working a summer job while trying to squeeze in a couple classes... with almost no spare time from Monday to Friday? 

SLC to the rescue! In response to requests, our Student Learning Commons has arranged for one of their peer educators, Kyle C., to offer consultations on Saturdays from 11:00 AM - 1:30 PM - every Saturday until Aug. 6th!  

Super Kyle will be in the consultation area just outside the Burnaby Student Learning Commons office. For those who haven't yet used our wonderful SLC services, their Burnaby office is in the NW corner of the main (3rd) floor of our WAC Bennett Library -- LIB 3020.

Either book a consultation appointment through the SLC's online booking system, or drop in and look for Kyle -- a mature student in the SFU NOW program -- in the SLC Consultation area. Kyle can assist drop-in clients when he's not already with someone. (TIP: I strongly suggest booking an appointment -- I understand that the first Saturday (tomorrow - June 11th) is already filled up, and I suspect that will be the case on most Saturdays!)

Never heard of the Student Learning Commons (SLC)?  SFU's amazing Student Learning Commons staff, graduate facilitators, and peer educators offer expert and friendly help with academic writing, learning, and study strategies, as well as support for EAL learners. There are SLC services available at all three of SFU's campuses, as well as many online resources at their site.

When you combine the SLC assistance with the research assistance offered by our librarians and the IT Services assistance and software available at all three campuses (including IT Techs on duty within our Burnaby Library), there really is help available from the moment you receive your assignment in class all the way through to the moment you hand in your completed project/essay/report... you just need to ask!
