Chat with a Tutor tutorials

Any student can book an individual session to chat about any aspect of their learning and studying at university.  Usually students will come with questions about a particular issue or may want to discuss how to approach an assignment or the tutor feedback.

When do these sessions run?

Virtual ‘Chat with a Tutor’ sessions are available over the summer. You can book one session at a time, up to two weeks ahead.

For international students there are two additional drop-in sessions running on Tuesdays.

How to book a session

To book a 30 minute virtual session, please e-mail us at sls@stir.ac.uk. In the email please let us know:

  • Your student number
  • What day and date you would like a session on
  • What year and course you are on
  • A brief note of what you would like to discuss

For international students

There are additional drop-in sessions focused on language support. These are on a Tuesday morning. To book a slot, please email kevyn.whitelaw@stir.ac.uk.

Where will the session take place?  

The majority of sessions will be virtual and you will be sent a link to the meeting about 15 minutes before the arranged time. Please join early just to check that everything is working. If you feel that a meeting on-campus would be more beneficial, please let us know so that this can be arranged.

How long will the session last?

These sessions will be 30 minutes long. To make the most of the time, please have any documents open and ready on your computer, so that it is easy to share them with the tutor. We can talk you through this process.
