YourTutor is a free-to-use service, available through Moodle, allows you to submit any piece of work and, in return, receive personalised comments, suggestions and encouragement from a writing expert.
Using this service will allow you to improve your work and make sure that your next essay is your best essay. So give it a try!
For any questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
You can submit writing on any subject, at any stage. The service is available to suit your lifestyle, 24/7 365 days a year. It offers a quick turnaround - you will receive feedback in no more than 24 hours.
Feedback can include advice on improving the language, structure and referencing. The reviewer does not comment on the accuracy of the content and they are not subject experts.
Supplementing existing help
We are currently piloting this scheme to foundation and first-year students until the end of the academic year. You can submit up to three pieces of writing during this period.
YourTutor supplements UEL's existing high level of student support. You will continue to have access to Skills Advisers, English for Academic Purposes (EAP) tutors and Learning Achievement Assistants (LAAs). Instead this service will free up their time so they can help you with higher level academic skills.

- Step 1: sign in to your Moodle account and upload your draft writing file to YourTutor, listing the areas you want specific help with.
- Step 2: in less than 24 hours, one of the tutors will send the file back with in-line comments and feedback. You will be notified by email and can then log back in to collect your file.
