The tutors will not ‘give’ you answers - they are teachers and experts and their standards (and our standards) are too high for that.
The live tutors provide direction, guidance, feedback, support, prompting, and help students get ‘unstuck’. Because getting stuck and overcoming it is part of learning, overcoming those struggles in a productive way, at the right time, is crucial.
Similarly, tutors who give feedback on essays, do not write the work for you. They will point out strengths and weaknesses in your work, give suggestions on how to improve structure, point out examples of common errors you might be making, and assess whether your work is appropriate to the task set (eg different writing styles for a speech vs a persuasive essay vs a screenplay).
It is our aim to teach students to think for themselves and reach their own answers ethically, to ensure they know what to do next time.
