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.
First year students are particularly encouraged to make use of the tutoring facilities.
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.
In 2022P, we are pleased to offer tutoring services for all BA classes. Our tutors will be participating in English Composition, Discovery (Introduction to Medieval English) and Introduction to English Language and Linguistics this semester, in addition to holding one-on-one appointments in selected weeks (not including the Easter break).
Appointments with our tutoring team can be booked online.
