Your tutor will help you dissect certain areas of confusion as well as teach you strategies on how to proofread and edit your work. The tutor will not edit or proofread your whole assignment but can focus on a certain area, so you will be able to apply those ideas to the rest of your assignment.

Your tutor will get you started on the pre-writing process by helping you decide on a topic and organize your ideas in an outline. This will get you ready to start drafting your writing.

Bring the topic of what you have to write. The tutor will work with you on how to properly write a paragraph, how to create flow, and how to organize your ideas.

Your tutor will give you tips and tricks to find relevant and credible sources for your assignment. Your tutor can also help you to navigate the Cambrian Library Database and Catalogue.

Your tutor will help you construct proper summaries and paraphrases by coaching you through the process of putting researched information in your own words appropriately and without risk of plagiarism.

Your tutor will explain how to create proper sentences that are clear and complete. The information that the tutor covers will help you to improve your sentence structure and the accuracy of your writing.

Your tutor will review the rules of grammar concepts and usage covered in your English class.

In this session, you will be able to work with a tutor to help practice your English speaking skills. This can be related to pronunciation, fluency or general conversational English.
