Essay Tutoring

Writing is a lifelong learning process — we are always learning how to write better, more clearly, more effectively and powerfully, even the most experienced writers. As such, the English Department is pleased to offer tutoring services for all BA students (teaching weeks only). You can find our tutors in in some first-year classes and they are also available for individual sessions. All BA students are encouraged to make use of this opportunity. 

Students are welcome to bring essay outlines, drafts or corrected essays to discuss with our tutors during the one-on-one consultations. Tutors do not proofread and/or edit assignments. Rather, they help students to develop effective writing skills and editing strategies, to spot and prioritise issues to work on, and to become more confident writers and better readers of their own writing.

First year students are particularly encouraged to make use of the tutoring help.

This semester, we have tutors available for all of our BA courses until mid-May 2020To book an appointment with one of our tutors, please visit the booking website.

During the university closure, tutors will be operating in an online-only capacity, following the schedule below. You can meet with them in the following rooms:


Linguistics: talky.io/unil_eng_linguistics


Literature: talky.io/unil_eng_literature


If you would like to book an appointment, please use the link below. Priority will be given to students with appointments.
