    My problem is a bit trivial compared to other people’s problems but I could do with some advice please. I am having problems with my English lecturer. I am struggling a bit at university due to health, family and grade problems and my lecturer has/ was very supportive. she has helped me progress in uni and has really stuck her neck out for me and has given me that extra bit of help when perhaps she should not have. One of her emails to me read ‘we will be together to that graduation ceremony’…so you get the gist of things.

    Recently I feel she’s acting a bit different, like for example we had a tutorial about my dissertation and she was not her usually friendly self. I felt she was acting rather cold and unemotional towards me and she did not seem to be encouraging me about my project. So about a week later I mentioned it in an email and she said she was sorry and that she’ll move me to another tutor. However I do not understand the sudden change in her behaviour towards me and I do not want to be moved to another tutor. I just want her to be supportive which is what I said to her but she ignored what I’d said and just replied saying she would put me with someone else and that these things happen, which seemed like a cold uncaring response to me...it did not really resolve things.

    I mean she was so fantastic and helped me immensely and as stated before she was really friendly towards me. Asking lots of questions about my personal life as well as my academic life and she said she would be there for me till the end but now she is just going to casually hand me over to someone else…I don’t get it! Did I do something wrong?
