NMH – Specialist Study Skills – SpLD

As an SpLD Study Skills tutor, I provide tailored support for individuals in receipt of Disabled Students Allowance. The most common Specific Learning Difficulties are Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Attention Deficit Disorder/ Attention Deficit (Hyperactivity) Disorder, Dyscalculia and Dysgraphia.

I have been working as an SpLD Study Skills Tutor since 2011. I am a registered provider and qualified to the standards required by the Disabled Students Allowance Quality Assurance Group (DSA QAG).

What is SpLD Specialist Study Skills Support?

SpLD Study Skills is one to one support, which addresses issues students may have in recalling information, range of memory, reading or retaining information, and organisational attention and numeracy difficulties.

Study Skills support can consist of strategies in reading and research, punctuation and grammar, note taking, critical analysis techniques, managing and staying on top of deadlines, stress management, improving memory and reading comprehension, revision strategies and effective listening skills.

The aim of the support is to develop students’ academic study skills and independent learning, and is tailored to suit the individual needs of the student when working within the HE context.

Faraday was my tutor throughout university. She supported me in my personal and academic life to set and achieve goals, to maintain quality of work and to increase my confidence. I always looked forward to my sessions with Faraday’s warm, positive and understanding company. Thanks to Faraday, I felt totally supported during my university experience and I will always be grateful for the time and energy she gave me.
