Study Skills Tutor
I have worked in education since 2008, beginning my career as a lecturer in Further Education, followed by Higher Education for over a decade. Since 2019 I have been working as a specialist study skills tutor, supporting university students with specific learning differences. With a background in teaching science-related subjects in a University, I have an intimate understanding of the requirements of this level of study, and how to develop the skills needed for success. I take a friendly, flexible approach that is tailored to the needs of the individual. I quickly identify any barriers to learning and work with my students’ strengths to develop effective strategies for studying. This enables them to maximise their academic potential. I love seeing my students succeed and aim to support them with other aspects of study such as presentation skills and stress management. I love learning new skills too and try to challenge myself in new ways, in my spare time I am developing my landscape painting skills, completing a proofreading and copy-editing course and learning to play squash with friends.
