1:1 Consultations for Writing and Presentations


Work with one of our experienced academic English tutors on a one-to-one basis to improve your writing and presentation skills.

As an international or EU student at the University of Reading, you can book individual Writing Consultations or Presentation Consultations to get advice and input on your academic communication in English. These consultations allow you to ask specific questions and receive feedback on a particular piece of work from one of our highly qualified academic language specialists.

Due to the current circumstances, Writing Consultations and Presentation Consultations will mostly be conducted online.

"Super helpful feedback from the tutor on an assignment I was writing covering flow, grammar, logic etc. Very comprehensive. Master's student, Henley Business School


"Today, in your tutorial it was very helpful because we focussed on subtle things I was not aware of, but I am very glad to know as this will improve my academic writing." PhD student, Psychology


You can apply for a maximum of two 30-minute consultations per term.

For Writing Consultations submit up to 4 pages of your writing to be reviewed in advance. Your AEP tutor will be able to answer questions and offer advice or feedback regarding task achievement, organisation, source-use and citation, and language.

For Presentation Consultations, you can practise and receive feedback on clarity of message, language accuracy, and pronunciation.

Although we do not provide a proof-reading or language correction service, if you need these services, we can also provide a list of private proofreaders.
