Specialist Study Skills Support can help all students in all stages of education and it is important to note that many students, not only those with Dyslexia and related Specific Learning Difficulties experience difficulties with Study Skills and Organisation as they make the transition from Year 9 to studying for external exams.
These 1:1 specialist study skill sessions are tailored to meet the individual needs of the student and as such may cover a number of key areas, including:
- Developing, planning,organisation and extended writing skills
- Improving Reading Comprehension
- Revision Skills and Memory Techniques
- Academic Writing
- Note taking in Lessons
- Establishing Priorities
- Exam and Assessment Tasks
- Reading for Research
- Time Management and Organisation
- Addressing Learning Anxiety
Study Skill Sessions are designed to encourage students to transfer skills learned in order to become independent learners and as such these consultations can be booked as and when required to fit with the exam and coursework requirements. Study Skills Support Sessions are booked for 1 1/2 hours.
Please contact us by email using firstname.lastname@example.org for your first booking.
In some cases, particularly if a student has a learning difficulty but no longer requires support with basic literacy skills a regular programme of Study Skills Support may be more beneficial for the student concerned.
