"Students consult Academic Support tutors for different reasons depending on the type of project. They may be overwhelmed by the size and open-endedness of the task and need ways of breaking it down and managing time through the different stages. They may need to discuss how to keep on track with addressing a focused question, and they may need someone to read their work to check for relevance and coherence."
