1:1 Specialist Study Skills Tutor

1:1 specialist study skills tutor:

As a specialist 1:1 study skills tutor i provide students (who are recognised as having dyslexia and co-ocurring difficulties for example, dyspraxia and ADHD) with learning strategies. Support for each student directly reflects their disability needs assessment report which is then integrated into student support plans. I work in an holistic and person-centred manner that reflects the 1:1 individual aspirations and needs of each student.
