Appointments with a Learning Enhancement Tutor Appointments with a Learning Enhancement Tutor

Learning Enhancement Tutors can offer guidance on a wide range of study skills, academic writing, including use of English, and the mathematical and statistical parts of your course.

Our service is available to all students registered on UEA courses and is free and confidential. We are available throughout the year, except when the University is closed.

Please note that if you have a Specific Learning Difficulty you can also access tutorial support with a specialist tutor.

Please note that we do not offer a proofreading service, though we can provide you with a list of proofreaders. Remember to read UEA's policy on the use of proofreaders before using a proofreading service. You can access the policy by visiting our pages on plagiarism.

To find out more about our service, take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions.

Drop-ins Drop-ins

To talk about how we can help, or if you have a quick question, you can come to a drop-in. No appointment is necessary and a tutor will see you for 10 minutes. Drop-in sessions are held Monday to Thursday from 16:00-17:00 in the Student Support Centre (please note that times may vary outside term time).

After you have attended a drop-in, a tutor may recommend that you book a 50 minute individual or small group tutorial.

Booking a tutorial Booking a tutorial

You can book an individual tutorial appointment either by visiting the Student Support Centre reception or by phone on 01603 592761.

If you are interested in setting up a small group tutorial please speak to a Learning Enhancement Tutor or email your request to ask.let@uea.ac.uk.

Please note that if you have a Specific Learning Difficulty you can also access tutorial support with a specialist tutor.

If you would like to speak to a tutor about your work it is important to plan ahead and book early. Only one tutorial can be booked at a time and we cannot usually offer more than one individual or small group tutorial per week. The availability of repeat appointments may be limited due to demand. Please note that if you do not arrive on time for your appointment your tutor might not be able to see you.

If you are unable to attend face-to-face tutorials for work, placement or family reasons, or if you are studying online, please email us at ask.let@uea.ac.uk to discuss ways that we might be able to help you.

Non-attendance and cancellations Non-attendance and cancellations

We recognise that sometimes late cancellations are unavoidable. However, given the high demand for our support, if you cannot attend your tutorial please let us know at least 24 hours before the appointment time so that we may give the appointment to another student.

If you do not attend your tutorial or cancel with less than 24 hours' notice you may not be offered another tutorial for 7 days. If this happens on three occasions we reserve the right to withdraw availability of tutorials.

  • past exam papers;
  • problem sheets;
  • any work in progress which you would like to discuss.
