Study Skills Tuition
The Disabled Students' Allowance provides additional financial help for students in Higher Education who have Specific Learning Differences, such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia, or other conditions, such as mental health, AD(H)D, autism or Asperger Syndrome. The DSA can provide the funding for individual specialist study skills tuition.
Funding may also be available through Access to Work.
Individual Specialist Study Skills Tuition
We want to provide you with the very best support. To that end we will ensure that:
Your tutor will be a graduate, with qualified teacher status, hold a relevant post graduate qualification in Specific Learning Differences, have experience of supporting students in Higher Education and be a full member of a professional body - either The Professional Association of Teachers of Students with Specific Learning Difficulties (Patoss), or The British Dyslexia Association (BDA).
The support focuses on your individual evolving academic needs, which are informed by the tutor’s specialist knowledge and the recommendations of the Assessment of Study Needs.
Your support package will include assistance with study skills, such as developing your learning styles, time management, note taking strategies, writing for different purposes (e.g. essay, report, dissertation), preparing for exams, dealing with stress and anxiety. The aim is to make you a confident and independent learner, developing skills that can be transferred to the work place once you graduate.
Your support is delivered in a flexible way, from 8am to 9pm, seven days a week, using the approach that suits you - either in person or in a virtual environment (Skype, webcam, email, telephone). See the Contact us page for further information.
