The tutor’s role

Tutorials with the Writing Development Service are a developmental, teaching and learning activity which helps you learn the independent study skills you need to be a successful student. In accordance with the university's policy on proofreading and collusion, our remit is not to do the work for you, but to help you develop the relevant understanding, strategies and techniques.

Our tutors can:

  • look at your work to identify areas to address or to interpret feedback
  • use a sample of your work to explain relevant points of language, style or structure
  • discuss a sample of your work to help you develop and apply strategies, techniques or study skills
  • discuss your work in the light of teaching, learning and assessment expectations

Please note that we do not offer a proofreading service
