Preparing for a one-to-one tutorial

Preparing for a Tutorial

How to Prepare

In order to get the most from a tutorial, it's important to make the necessary preparation so that your tutor can advise and assist to the best of their ability. Here are some things you should consider before you arrive at your appointment:

  • Think about what you want to achieve from the tutorial
  • Have a clear target – be realistic about what you can achieve in 30 minutes
  • Where possible bring along an example of your work – it is easier to work from something concrete
  • Check our workshop programme and online learning resources to see what other support is available from the Centre
  • Turn up on time
  • Cancel your appointment if you cannot attend – so that we can offer the appointment to someone else

Our aim is to help you develop your academic skills. In doing this you will become a more confident and independent learner. So, please remember:

  • We are not a proofreading service. We can, however, help you improve your proofreading skills, so that you can correct your own assignments
  • We may not be subject specialists in your area of study - so we cannot comment on the content of your assignments
  • We do not ‘mark’ work or suggest what mark you may get - we leave that to your course tutors.
