Study Skills Tutoring

What is study skills tutoring?

This specific form of tutoring is based on the development of useful, sustainable and practical skills that aid with studying, whether that be at GSCE, A-Level or University level. It is not subject dependent and skills learnt can be applied across different topics, subjects or units. 

Those who benefit most from study skills tutoring are students who have a good grasp of the content but struggle to show their understanding in assessments. Students may feel frustrated that they are working hard, but not getting the results they would like. Those who are open to trying new ways of learning, revising and organising are most likely to experience the greatest results from study skills tutoring.

What makes me qualified to deliver study skills tutoring?

I have a strong academic record, achieving 3 A’s at A-Level, a 2:1 at Undergraduate level, a Distinction at Masters level and have completed a PhD. 

In order to achieve these results and meet high standards, I had to diversify, explore and use different methods of studying. This was particularly important whilst managing physical and mental health issues during my studies.

I have learnt what works, and perhaps more importantly, what doesn’t.

I have full DBS clearance for working with children and young people, including vulnerable groups.

How does study skills tutoring with me work?

In the first instance, contact me using the link below to discuss your requirements. We can work together to develop a plan over a period of weeks or months meeting regularly to cover specific topics, or we can work together on a more casual basis dealing with issues as they arise. Alternatively, I can work with clients intensively for a day to cover a range of skills. 

Sessions are delivered in person (Cornwall/Bath/Somerset/Wiltshire) or via Skype/Zoom.
