One-on-one Meet-ups

Two students meeting

For the Spring 2020 term, all one-on-one meet-ups will be offered through virtual video chat appointments only.

What's a one-on-one meet-up?

Renison ELI offers our BASE, EFAS, and GEAR students the opportunity to meet one-on-one with a Peer Leader, your Student Advisor, or the Student Experience Manager, to practice English, learn about study strategies, or get help applying to a university or college in Canada.  These meetings are usually an hour in length, but can be customized for a shorter or longer time if needed.

During a one-on-one meet-up, we can chat about anything related to your personal and academic success, including:

Study strategies, including textbook skim/scanning, notes reviews, test taking tips and dealing with test anxiety

Time management help and helping you organize all of your assignments, tests, study time—and find time to attend events also!

Questions about life at Waterloo and being a successful student

• Support with adjusting to life in Canada and the city of Waterloo.

• Conversations about mental health wellness and how to build healthy strategies into your day-to-day schedule.

English practice! Just meet with us and practice your conversational English. We can talk about anything you like!

If you have any questions, please contact A.J. Dixon, Student Advisor.
