As a study coach I provide support to students who need study skills. I help in developing study strategies to result in the student becoming an independent learner through organisation, planning, editing, copy-editing, proof-reading and presentation skills. This revolves around planning a programme of support of current difficulties and areas to improve on and an assessment of what the course demands and deadlines for work. All of this is done in conjunction with the student, student’s teachers, supervisors and guidelines of their education establishment and ultimately helps develop their voice, confidence and ideas.
