What happens when you book a tutorial with a Learning Advisor

  1. You set the agenda for tutorials and decide on the topic for discussion.
  1. Appointments will normally be arranged on a Monday- Friday between 9-5 and will last for 30 minutes.
  1. The aim of the sessions is to focus on developing learning so:
    1.  You might want to discuss:
  • A marked assignment so that we can discuss feedback
  • A module handbook
  • An outline of the assessment criteria for an assignment
  • A timetable of submission dates to talk about time management
  1. We will help you devise strategies to check your own work but we will not proofread.
  2. We will help you to identify ways to improve your writing based on a draft piece of work. For this reason only one tutorial is offered for each piece of work (unless advised by the tutor).  You are advised to email a draft piece of work in advance of the tutorial so that we can prepare feedback.
  3. Tutorials will focus on the style and structure of the student’s work not on discipline specific content.
  1. We may refer students to another source of support within the University where appropriate.
  1. To allow the Learning Hub to meet the needs of all students:
    1.  We are usually only able to offer one tutorial per week (unless recommended by the Learning Advisor).
    2. It is important that you let us know if you are unable to keep your appointment so we can offer the time to another student.
