Student Language and Learning

Improve your writing and academic skills

You can book an individual or small group consultation with our Student Learning Tutor from Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 3pm. These are delivered in the Management Student Centre (MSB.1.50).

Academic support is offered as a free service to all students of Waikato Management School.

Our Student Learning Tutor (Vicky Young) can provide expert guidance on how to improve your academic writing, reading, and verbal presentation skills - such as writing an essay, report or literature review.

She can also help you to master academic skills such as APA referencing and teach you how to avoid plagiarism.

Vicky can also discuss a previously marked assignment with you, or assist with planning and structuring a draft assignment.
