Why use a personal tutor?

Having one-to-one tuition can be a very effective way to support university students with their studies. Subject to availability, we are usually able to find you a tutor for most of the subjects taught at UK universities.

A personal tutor can advise students as to the best way to manage their workload and this can help make a significant improvement to their academic performance. As well as offering advice and guidance, a tutor will be able to help with class and exam preparation, essays and dissertation writing skills, etc. This will help students to become a self-reliant learner, which will improve performance up to the exam period and hopefully get the result desired.

There are a number of good reasons for choosing to use a tutor, including:

  • Catch-up support To catch up if they have for some reason fallen behind (e.g. due to a period of illness).
  • Confidence building To help students to build their confidence, either for a specific subject/s or to build their confidence as an independent learner.
  • Subject specific support To provide tailored support for a student who wants to excel (or who is struggling) with an important part of their studies.
  • Study skills support At university, students are expected to be fully independent learners. Sometimes this is where some students struggle to adapt, and when one-to-one tuition can be most helpful.
  • Learning difficulties To provide tailored support for a student who is struggling, due to having a specific learning difficulty e.g. dyslexia or dyscalculia or other types of learning difficulties (see our Special Education Needs page).
  • Exam preparation To support and prepare students for their exam/s qualifications, for which obtaining the right results can be critical in determining what further study (and/or career) options are going to be available to them.
  • Essay or dissertation support This can be valuable for students at university level who may need additional support in marshalling and presenting information.
