One-to-one online writing tutorials
50-minute online writing tutorials will be available from week 4 (w/c 25 October 2021). Bookings can be made from week 3 (18 October 2021). 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.
One-to-one in-person tutorials
If you’d prefer to meet a tutor face-to-face, some in-person appointments are available on campus in Eastwood Lodge, in room EL1.03.
If you prefer, you can get feedback on your writing via email.
The writing tutor will read your work and prioritise key areas so you can develop and improve the quality of your writing. Their feedback will be sent to you by email within three working days.
You can find the email feedback slot on Wednesdays in the calendar (but there is no meeting/appointment). Just upload your writing as normal when you book.
One thing I found particularly useful was that the tutor told me the most common mistakes I made... Throughout the rest of the year I’ve picked up on these mistakes more easily and have achieved the highest marks I ever have out of my whole time at university. I’ve progressed from a 2:2 in first year to a 1st overall in final year. (Mackyla Palmer-Logue, 4th Year Social Sciences)
