Discuss and understand language areas for improvement through a piece of oral or written work
NEW! Our consultations are now available for native speaker students and academic staff.
If you require help with a specific piece of academic writing or an oral presentation, we offer one-to-one consultations with a CfAE tutor. Our aim is to work with you to help you identify and understand language areas for improvement. This means analysing your work at the text, sentence and word level (e.g. organisation, grammar, vocabulary or pronunciation) in order to guide you towards resolving these issues for yourself longer term.
How to book
Step 1: Use our online booking system to select your appointment date/time and fill in the requested personal details. Please note that consultations should be booked at least a week in advance.
Step 2: We will then confirm your appointment via email within three working days.
Step 3: As soon as you have received email confirmation from the CfAE Administrator,
- if it is a writing consultation, please send the tutor the text you are working on (maximum 1,000 words and at least 2 working days before the appointment) and let them know which key language areas you wish to discuss.
- if it is a presentation consultation, please send the tutor your slides and let them know which key language areas you wish to discuss.
This is not a proofreading service.
The maximum number of consultations any student can book per term is two. This is so that as many students as possible can benefit from our consultations service.
For each consultation, whether 30 minutes or 1 hour, the text should be no more than 1000 words.
