The tutor was extremely helpful in talking through the overall argument of my thesis as well as focusing specifically on the chapter at hand. We began to make a plan for the successful execution of this reworked chapter.

Very clear and informative. There was time to catch up with everything that was going on and we weren't overloaded with information either!
