We can offer general guidance on academic skills including the principles of academic writing.
Literature searching – we can discuss and suggest the best approach to a literature search. As this is a drop in service we can normally spend up to ten minutes on each enquiry.
Referencing – to improve referencing we can check a sample of references to help devise strategies for improvement.
Referrals - we aim to identify the most appropriate source of support either within the Library or from across the University.
For example within the Learning Hub:
There are two learning advisors to support writing and academic skills:
Learning Hub Manager
Learning Advisor (Literacy)
There is one learning advisor to support maths:
Dr Mubashar Ahmad
Learning Advisor (Numeracy)
One of the members of staff from the English Language Centre also offers tutorials via the Learning Hub.
The Learning Hub drop-in and Succeed@Tees workshops are delivered by any of the academic librarians, assistant academic librarians and learning advisors in the library.
