Can anyone recommend a Uni Tutor around the Brisbane area ?, I am doing a Bachelor of Accounting through Open University and looking for a tutor for assistance, being that it is correspondence struggle a bit for any help.
After having been through the open universities struggle myself I can recommend that you contact your tutors who will discuss in detail anything you get stuck on. I can't stress that enough. Never hesitate to e-mail your tutor. It's their job to tutor you and they don't want you to fail and I had many late night conversations with my tutors during my "fuck this, I quit" episodes. Also get on blackboard and try to connect with other students, get e-mail addresses and organize times where you can study together. Everything you need to pass the subject is there.
I love how the t.v spots imply that studying through open is easy as 'done'. Total bullshit.
I do open uni, defo recommend contacting the tutor as much as possible for help, they are generally very good. Also hit up fellow students on the course via the forums provided by the open uni to organise group study sessions. Don't they have regular classroom tutorials you can attend? My courses to-date have offered this though I rarely go.
Also I'd say always read the student notes section of the assignment booklet for your particular assignment, it makes it very clear exactly what you need to have in the assignment.
