We recommend our individual (one-to-one) tutorials to students who:
- would like a one-off consultation with a tutor
- are working on particular assignment, project or presentation
- have identified a particular area which needs improvement (e.g. pronuncatiation or use of grammar)
Individual tutorials last approximately 30 minutes. You will be given an initial appointment during which you and the tutor will decide on the learning plan and how many further tutorials will be booked.
Individual tutorials currently take place via Collaborate on Blackboard, or by email.
