One-to-One Tutor appointments

Book an appointment

Do you need help to improve your general academic skills or need guidance for your academic writing? 

We offer two types of appointments:

  1. One-to-one 30min appointments with one of our academic skills tutor to help improve your general academic skills
  2. One-to-one 50min appointments with one of our academic writing Fellows from the Royal Literary Fund

If you have a quick question, our tutors also offer a one-to-one quick query drop-in service at the City Campus and Fife Campus - no appointment required.


Have a look at our guides to see what each type offers before making your appointment. You will be expected to have already consulted our online resources, with your one-to-one appointment providing further support or clarification.
