Lochtie, D., McIntosh, E., Stork, A. and Walker, B.W. (2018) Effective Personal Tutoring in Higher Education St Albans: Critical Publishing

Kathryn McFarlane


Liz Thomas describes the field of personal tutoring in Higher Education as “something of an academic desert” (Foreword, p.x) and, with that in mind, the authors have set out to “unearth good practice in tutoring” (p.4). The aims set out in the introduction include providing “a highly effective approach for delivering personal tutoring and coaching” (p.4), acting as a toolkit and having impact on the strategic level, such as the achievement of key performance indicators. Overall I felt that the book achieved its aims and I would agree with  Thomas that it is a “much-needed resource” (p.x).
