Online study help

Students can get extra help with just the click of a button.

'yourtutor' lets students refresh their study skills and ask a real-life expert tutor questions about anything related to study and learning. It could be something they have forgotten from high school, in English, maths, science, research, business studies or other areas. It might be about how to write an essay or answer an assignment question.

NEW! The yourtutor service now includes detailed essay feedback through Check Mate. See below for details.

What is yourtutor?

yourtutor gives students access to one-to-one support from an experienced tutor when and where they need it most – whether on campus, at home, or on the bus! It is online and cloud-based, so there are no appointments needed, no registration required, and no extra software to download; plus it can be used on tablets as well as desktop computers.

When is it available?

yourtutor is available from 3:00pm – 12:00am, six days a week Sunday to Friday during semester.

How do students access it?

How does Check Mate help you with your essay writing?

Check Mate is not an essay writing service, but it can help you nail your written assignments by giving you detailed advice on:

  • Essay structure including your introduction, linking sentences, body paragraphs and conclusion.
  • Language choice: is it appropriate for the type of assignment you're working on – e.g. persuasive essay, speech, critical analysis or report?
  • Development of ideas including whether you've adequately answered the question.
  • Referencing: where relevant, we will advise you on your prescribed reference method e.g. Harvard referencing, or other citations.
  • Grammar and spelling: the YourTutor tutors will pick up any mistakes you've made and help you understand how to avoid them in future.
