One-to-one appointments

Do you want feedback on your assignment before you submit? Are you unsure about the structure of your essay? Do you struggle with referencing? Are you confused about how to approach a difficult topic? If any of these issues seem familiar and you are looking for some advice, then please book a Skills Centre Writing Clinic. The Writing Clinics are one-to-one, thirty-minute appointments held through Google Meet with our skilled Tutors. Your tutor will go through your piece of work and address the key areas of concern in order to help redraft and refine your assignment. They will give you advice on structure and on how best to focus on the question being asked. This personalised, detailed feedback will help you gain control of your writing and give you the tools to tackle future assignments with confidence.

Alternatively, may find that studying effectively can be difficult. Study can be something that is elusive and difficult to articulate. Try ask yourself: what is it that you do well? What is blocking you from achieving? You may even be confused about where to start! If this sounds like you then why not book a session with one of our academic study coaches today. Your tutor will help you to identify ways to address your concerns and improve your academic performance. They might recommend that you review our resources on writing an essay, building an academic argument, and so on, in order to develop your academic skills.
