Reviews

I would have no hesitation in recommending this book to staff at my institution and others. The practical nature of the book makes it an easy read and yet there is much included on which to ponder.' – Sarah Morey, University of Reading, UK
'It encourages personal tutors to stop and reflect on their own practice and so will be of interest to most aspiring and established tutors, whatever their level of individual expertise and experience.' – Nick Sutcliffe, The Open University, UK
