A tutorial is a 25-minute meeting where you can look at your individual language issues with your teacher. You will go through a piece of writing (for example, an assignment, maximum 1,000 words) and work on improving some key areas. Your teacher might ask you some questions about a grammatical point, or get you to rewrite a sentence so it is more academic. It’s important that you send your teacher a sample of your work at least a day before the tutorial so they can prepare.
Tutorials can help you improve specific assignments, but they are more helpful to improve your academic English in general. If you aren’t taking part in a course, or if you are proficient speaker of English, a tutorial could be a good choice for you.
Top Tip: don’t wait until your assignment deadline to book a tutorial. Make an appointment in the middle of the study block so you can find out your areas of weakness and improve them before your assignment is due.
