We offer one-to-one study skills support aimed specifically at students with dyslexia to improve their ability to study more effectively and independently.
We appreciate that the experiences of every individual with dyslexia are unique therefore our one-to-one study skills support is tailored to meet the specific requirements of each student.
Support tutors are not subject specific and support does not include subject tuition, extra English tuition, proofreading or writing assignments for students.
One to one support involves a process of helping students understand their Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD’s) and how they may affect their ability to study effectively. All of our tutors are trained to explore and provide strategies with students to help them develop their own study skills techniques by building on their learning strengths through a multi-sensory approach. Our overall aim is to provide students with life long skills which can be transferred to the workplace and applied in their everyday lives.
The service we offer is flexible and includes evening and weekend support to accommodate all student requirements and ensure they receive the one to one support they are entitled to, irrespective of other commitments.
All student information is held in complete confidence in line with the Data Protection Act (1998) unless exceptional circumstances arise when maintaining confidentiality may not be in the best interest of the student or wider community.
