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.  You need to have an idea of the specific area of mathematics or statistics that you would like to develop.
  1. Appointments will normally be arranged on a Monday-Thursday and will last for 30 minutes.
    1. The aim of the sessions is to focus on developing learning so you might want to bring:
  • Sample questions
  • Details of your exam or assignment submission
  • Mock exam papers
  1. In order to consolidate your learning, we may ask you to answer questions in your own time before the next tutorial.
  1. We may refer you to another source of support within the University where appropriate. Mubashar can provide help with foundation level engineering maths, but for more advanced engineering maths, you will be referred to the School of Science, Engineering and Design.
  1. To allow the Learning Hub to meet the needs of all students:
    1.  We are usually only able to offer one tutorial in a week (unless advised by the learning advisor).
    2. It is important that you let us know if you are unable to attend so we can offer your appointment to another student.
