One-to-one online writing tutorials
50-minute online writing tutorials are available from 5th January 2021, week 15 (‘Revision and Assessment’). Please book these on MySkills (up to three per year).
Online tutorials will be delivered on Microsoft Teams. Tutors will contact you through Teams at the time of your meeting. Make sure you have Microsoft Teams ready on your computer before your appointment. If you miss your time slot, you will lose it. There are online/remote options available throughout the Revision and Assessment period.
If you prefer, you can get feedback on your writing by email (up to three times per year). The writing tutor will read your work and prioritise key areas so you can develop and improve the quality of your writing. This will be sent back to you by email within three working days.
