    If the uni is aware the tutor making your work will also be made aware.

    When you say "considered your dyslexia" what do you actually mean? The university should be putting support in place for you to help with studying, and make special arrangements e.g. in exams, but it sounds like you're suggesting they should be more lenient in marking your work because of your dyslexia. I don't think this is usual- unless you have a prior agreement with the uni, and if you do, then your lecturer will definitely be aware.

    If you're confused by the marking of your essay, why not go along to your lecturer's office hours and ask for more feedback?

    If you're struggling with your dyslexia generally, then I'd suggest going to your student support office to ask for more help/support.
