    Academic Writing and Language Support

    Tutorials

    Students are allowed one appointment per week and should book only with their school/faculty.

    Also, discover more with our self-study resources to help you improve your academic writing and language.

    To book an LET tutorial, please select your school/faculty from the list below to go to the relevant calendar on our booking system.

    Key points about One-to-One tutorials

    • They are private
    • They need to be booked in advance
    • They are usually 30 minutes long
    • We offer One-to-Ones for AWL (Academic Writing and Language) and MSN (Maths, Stats and Numeracy)
    • There is very high demand for One-to-One LET Tutorials so please tell us at least 24 hours in advance if you need to change or cancel an appointment. You can do this by email: LET@mdx.ac.uk

    Please note that we do not offer a proof-reading service in One-to-One LET Tutorials - see below.

    Note of caution: Proof-reading

    Please note that we do not offer a proof-reading service. You can certainly bring in drafts of your work to a One-to-One AWL tutorial and the AWL lecturer will look at your work with you. However, s/he will not correct all your work for you - that's your job! Instead s/he will give an overall evaluation of your work, and probably pinpoint various specific issues you can improve, such as structure, organisation, argumentation, criticality, paragraphing, referencing or particular areas of grammar or style.

    Writing Advice Drop-in Online

    Coming soon, the LET will be offering online Writing Advice Drop-ins. These sessions will run under the same format as our traditional Drop-ins, where you can receive focused feedback from a LET lecturer on your written work. You can also ask for advice on how to plan your assignment or to analyse assignment brief. Drop-in sessions are designed to offer quick and easy support. If you need more detailed feedback, our lecturers will help you to book a one-to-one tutorial.

    Academic Writing and Language (AWL) Open Workshops
