One to Ones and Online Tutorials

Individual support from our tutors on all aspects of academic and study skills.

One to one tutorials

In a one to one tutorial, we can offer guidance on many aspects of your studies, from interpreting an essay question, managing your time or reading critically, to planning structure, revising for exams or strategies for editing a final draft. Find out more about our one to one appointments and how to get the most out of them.

Online one to one tutorial

As of 17th March 2020, the University have made the decision to limit face to face contact within the University and there will be no face-to-face teaching for the remainder of the academic year. 

We use Zoom to offer our distance tutorials as we hope you will find that it is as close as we can get to experiencing one of our friendly, interactive face-to-face tutorials.

Zoom allows us to discuss your learning with audio and video, and share screens so you can show us any written work to look at together (for this reason, it will work best on a desktop or laptop with a bigger screen rather than a tablet or phone). Your tutor will send you a link before your appointment which you simply need to click on and join the meeting at the start of your appointment time.

There's no need to send us any work as Zoom allows you to share it on your own screen so we can discuss it together.

If you are unable to access our tutorial provision via this platform, please contact us to discuss alternatives

What do you need to know before requesting a one to one?

One to one tutorials with the Writing Development Centre are a developmental activity which help you gain the 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 understanding, strategies and techniques to develop as an independent learner.

One to one appointments with the Writing Development Centre are in high demand. Before you request a tutorial, find out more about what we can offer and how you can make the most of your time with us.
