Hi, my name is Nick Schroeder and I am an Academic Support Specialist at the Academic Success Centre where I specialize in academic writing and communication. I have been helping students improve their academic writing skills since 2014 and found my new home within the Academic Success Centre in 2020.
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from Dalhousie University and a Master of Arts degree from the University of Manitoba. My background is in applied and professional ethics, specifically in the field of bioethics.
I work with students in many areas of post-secondary education including Nursing, Community Services, Creative Communications, Business, Engineering, Health Sciences, Culinary Arts and many other RRC Polytech programs.
As an Academic Support Specialist, my priority is to improve students’ academic writing and communication skills by expanding their own academic self-confidence. I apply a developmental and collaborative approach to tutoring by working together with the student to identify and advance their academic capabilities. My proudest moments in Academic Support have come from watching students surpass their own academic expectations by improving writing skills, passing difficult classes, and winning awards!
