Specialist One-To-One Study Skills Support

Specialist one-to-one study skills tutorials are designed around individual student needs. The tutors are led by the areas the student wants to focus on, with the aim being to develop strategies relevant to their specific circumstances.

Examples of some of the most common areas of support are:

  • Understanding and approaching assignment briefs.
  • Developing skills for essays and other written assignments, e.g. structuring and planning, editing work and developing proof reading strategies.
  • Reading and research strategies.
  • Time management.
  • Preparing for presentations.
  • Dissertation reading, planning and writing.

Tutors are specially trained to work with students with Specific Learning Difficulties (e.g. dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD) but can also support students with other health conditions e.g. mental health difficulties and autistic spectrum conditions.

Please note: Tutors do not provide a proofreading service and cannot help with subject specific information (course tutors can provide this).

One-to-one tutorials are usually one hour long, but shorter or longer sessions can be arranged where appropriate. Tutorials are available from Monday to Friday at all colleges.
