  6. Context ● Purpose of personal tutoring is unclear making it hard to ‘sell’ to tutors and students, and to evaluate for impact. ● Personal tutoring is often seen as the ‘answer’ to a myriad of key higher education challenges such as progression, employability, and differential attainment but to address these complex issues it is under resourced - ‘the answer’ to a question that is in fact ill defined! ● Personal tutoring is seen as a low status activity by academics that they feel ill equipped to perform and that is under resourced. ● It is unclear how personal tutoring and auxiliary support services provide a cohesive experience.

  7. Context A sample of 130 students said... 11% did not feel they needed or wanted a personal tutor; 18% felt the personal tutoring ‘system’ worked well; and 71% of students suggested improvement was required with half of these perceiving no or limited value in the PT system they experienced. However some also said... • Meaningful interactions between students and their tutor can enable students to feel supported, motivated and sometimes, inspired • 3 facets of a fruitful relationship are: ‘the tutor cares about me’; ‘helps me improve my work’; and ‘values me as a learner’ But... They can spot when the personal tutoring offer is insincere, this could be because staff are not committed to the role or because it is under resourced relative to its stated aims Tutoring Matters Webinar Series
