Further support offered through specialist tuition Further support offered through specialist tuition


All students who have provided us with appropriate evidence of a specific learning difficulty are eligible for specialist tutorial support. If you are unsure if you have a Specific Learning Difficulty (SpLD) please look at our information about screening and assessment. Students who have attended a screening and are waiting to meet an Educational Psychologist are also eligible.

What can Specialist Tuition cover?

We can help you develop your academic skills in such areas as:

•    Reading and note taking
•    Time management
•    Memory and revision technique
•    Essay writing and planning
•    Pronunciation and presentations
•    Use of assistive software

Booking Booking

If you have a specific learning difficulty, you can book specialist tuitions one at a time at by emailing Student Services on studentsupport@uea.ac.uk.

If you would like to book more than one tuition in advance you can do this when you meet your tutor.

If you would like to speak to a tutor about your work it is important to plan ahead and book early. We cannot usually offer more than one tutorial per week and the availability of repeat appointments may be limited due to demand. Please note that if you do not arrive on time for your appointment your tutor might not be able to see you.

Cancelling tutorials Cancelling tutorials

Because demand for tutorials is high, it is essential that you let us know as soon as possible if you have to cancel a booked tutorial for any reason. At the very latest you should let us know 24 hours in advance if you are unable to attend.

What to bring What to bring

It is often helpful if you can provide an example of the kind of work you are having difficulty with. This could be an example of your written work, perhaps with feedback if it is a marked piece of work. Or you could bring some reading that you find difficult, a presentation you need to give, or some notes you need to memorise.
