Personalized tutorials are individual or group meetings to speak about and discuss about any kind of text in any of the phases of the writing process. This service is not addressed to correct, fix or evaluate academic texts. On the contrary, the tutorials aim is helping the users to develop their own writing strategies, their knowledge about the topic and the writing genre, based on dialogue and joint revision of the text.
The tutorial meetings last 45 minutes and can be face-to-face or virtual.
Before the meeting, the user must send the text that is working (draft, guide notes, etc.) and a document where specifies his/her doubts, aims, problems, etc. (contact form) to let the tutor prepare the meeting, whose focus is determined by the user.
We offer workshop and seminaries about different topics and aspects of the academic writing. Activities based on an active participation, teamwork and critical reflection methodology, about the writing contents and practices.
The focus and length varies depending on the needs of each group.
The trainings can be solicited through the contact form, in which must be specified the number of interested people and the matter demanded, or the problems or aims that want to be addressed with the training.
