Assistance centers are available for students experiencing difficulties in French, math, methodology or philosophy. This is a free service offered at each campus that provides one-on-one support with a teacher.
French Assistance Centers
French Assistance Centres (FACs) offer a variety of one-on-one support services in written French and literary analysis, including individualized follow-up, drop-in support, workshops, and online resources.
It is possible to benefit from regular or occasional supervision. Regular coaching is reserved for students who need regular follow-up and who benefit from weekly or bi-weekly meetings.
Occasional coaching consists of scheduled weekly coaching periods to address specific needs that do not require follow-up. The different types of workshops offered are:
- Diagnostic tests;
- Explanations related to a particular rule and supervised exercises;
- Supervised dictations or formative essays;
- Introduction to reference documents;
- Assistance in the correction of works to be handed in:
- This service allows you to carry out the linguistic revision of a text under the supervision of a resource person and with the help of Antidote correction software;
- Note: this is not about getting your work corrected, but about getting support to learn how to do a better self-correction;
- Preparatory sessions for the uniform French test.
The services are also available to distance education students.
Check with your campus FAC to find out what services are available. You can find the information on Omnivox.
