Personal Tutoring at Warwick - A Quick 3 Step Guide for Students

1. What is a Personal Tutor: Why do I have one?
2. What can I talk to my Personal Tutor about?
3. How can I get the most out of meetings with my Personal Tutor? 


If you have any problems with personal tutoring or need more information, each department has one or more Senior Tutors. Senior Tutors are experienced Personal Tutors within each department, so any difficulties or questions you have can be raised with them in the first instance. Your department will be able to tell you who your Senior Tutor is. Senior Tutors are also supported by Faculty Senior Tutors who work within the Dean of Students Office. You can find out more about the Dean of Students Office on this website. Further details of Warwick Student Support and Development Opportunities can also be found on MyWarwick.
