Tuition can help you with structuring and planning essays and assignments, exam revision strategies, interpreting questions and feedback and planning your study time appropriately. Tuition is primarily awarded through your Disabled Students Allowance (DSA), however if you have a disability, but are not eligible for DSA funding we can look to providing support through other funding streams. .

Specialist Tuition will not do your work, proofread your work or provide academic content however you will be taught a number of new skills and strategies which will help you to improve your own work and achieve your potential.
