Academic Subject Specific 1:1 Student Tuition

optimum-3-1024x683

Optimum Student Support understands that every student learns differently and that every student deserves the best chance of achieving their full potential in education.

Subject-specific tutors will provide additional study skills guidance and support in a subject specific area i.e. Maths, English, Science, French, Spanish.

This 1:1 academic tuition is individually tailored to student’s needs. Each student will be matched with the tutor that can meet the student’s exact needs and requirements i.e students with Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD) which may include Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Dyscalculia and ASD.

Our tutors are skilled at supporting students who struggle with subject content or who have difficulty sustaining attention in a classroom setting.

Tutors work one-to-one with students to teach them, review concepts, go through homework assignments step by step, identify learning gaps, provide missing information to ensure that pupils have a strong grasp of required material, and prepare them for upcoming tests and exams.

Our tutors will also work with students to develop their skills in: 

  • structuring essays and other written work
  • revision methods
  • analysing exam/essay questions
  • critical and reflective thinking and research skills
  • comprehension, summarising, referencing and note taking
  • developing and implementing proof reading strategies
  • assisting with time management and other academic-related organisational skills
  • examination preparation/revision techniques
  • understanding and implementing feedback from academic staff

Our tutors can visit a student at home, in school or the sessions can take place at our comfortable tuition centre in Cheltenham.

  • We have over 20 years experience in helping students and individuals achieve their best

  • All of our staff are highly qualified and trained in their field

  • Individually tailored academic and mental health support

  • I’m so thankful that I’ve been able to receive specialist mentoring because of the wonderful personalised support that has helped me get through university

    Some days I’ve been feeling down, but after my session I leave feeling infinitely better because it’s an outlet for whatever’s on my mind and my mentor’s warmth and enthusiasm is really uplifting.

  • With the help of my mentor I have done things I didn't think I'd be able to

    like present a poster at a conference, and now, I am a PhD student and the happiest I’ve ever been.

  • When I first came to university, I was extremely anxious having never been away from home

    My mentor has been instrumental in helping me deal with various concerns by talking through them and coming up with strategies to help manage them.

  • I feel more in control

    With time I let myself slowly face the situations that used to paralyze me. I am now back at work and have reconnected with my friends. I started with meeting out in the open to now being able to have a drink in a bar. I feel happy and back in control.
