One-to-one sessions led by Amanda Mitchison
In one-to-one sessions, Amanda can:
- talk to you about the way you structure your arguments
- suggest how you can write clearer and more compelling prose
- help you present your written work better
- resolve any concerns you may have with your writing.
You can discuss work you're doing for current assignments, and get feedback on assignments you have completed.
Although help can be provided in checking assignments and advising how to overcome problems, this does not constitute a proof-reading service. Further guidance on checking of assignments.
Amanda is available on Monday and Tuesday at Frenchay Campus in 3D24. Some Tuesday afternoons she will be seeing students at Glenside (room tbc). Appointments generally last between 45 minutes to an hour.
