Dr Simon Banks, UCL Chemistry, will use this UCL Arena Exchange seminar to discuss the problems he has identified in the system of personal tutoring and present his solutions.

As well as drawing on his own personal experiences of the system, he will present the methods currently employed by the Chemistry department.
