Specialist 1:1 Study Skills Support – SpLD

Specialist 1:1 Study Skills Support is individual support for students diagnosed with Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD), which may include Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Dyscalculia, in addition to other possible disabilities.

Study Skills Tutors will support students with the issues they might have in acquiring, recalling and retaining information in written and spoken language.

Tutors will  also provide support with a range of memory, organisational, attention and numeracy difficulties that students with specific learning difficulties (SpLD) or an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) often face when in further and/or higher education.

Using a range of multi-sensory strategies to facilitate independent learning, our highly specialist tutors will deliver individual study skills tuition and support students to identify their own learning styles and strengths. Students will be supported with their literacy in the areas of spelling, punctuation, grammar and accuracy of thought presentation.

Independent learning is promoted as well as empowering the student to manage their workload. Whilst study skills cannot be subject specific, our tutors can work with students using course materials as a framework.

Study Skills Tutors can  help with:

  • time management and organisational skills
  • efficient strategies for reading academic texts
  • note taking from texts, hand-outs and in lectures
  • research skills
  • mind mapping and planning techniques
  • proof reading strategies
  • approaching written assignments
  • memory techniques and strategies
  • revision methods
  • analysing exam/essay questions.
I’m so thankful that I’ve been able to receive specialist mentoring because of the wonderful personalised support that has helped me get through university
Some days I’ve been feeling down, but after my session I leave feeling infinitely better because it’s an outlet for whatever’s on my mind and my mentor’s warmth and enthusiasm is really uplifting.

With the help of my mentor I have done things I didn't think I'd be able to
like present a poster at a conference, and now, I am a PhD student and the happiest I've ever been.

I can’t stress enough how much Specialist Mentoring had a positive impact on my university experience
Mentoring taught me so much: how to manage my time better, how to revise efficiently, and most importantly, how to cope with my anxiety on a day-to-day basis. Specialist Mentoring made my university experience a positive one, and I don’t think I would be the person I am today without it.
