Study Skills for Students and Tutors - Coming 1st October!
Optimise your Learning
Why this course?
Private tutoring for school students is set to grow to a $102bn industry by the end of 2018. The demand for excellent tutors is higher than ever - there has never been a better time to become a tutor and earn great money while you study.
One of the ultimate goals of teachers and tutors is to enable students to think for themselves and to learn independently. A key component to this is teaching study skills. Traditional schooling sometimes fails to adequately prepare students for independent learning at university and beyond.
The goal of this course is to give tutors the tools they need to instil in students the ability to study independently. The skills covered are applicable beyond the textbook and classroom to any learning situation in life.
The modern world is changing rapidly and we are all now "lifelong" learners. We all therefore need to be able to navigate and learn in a constantly changing world. The study skills covered in this course are applicable to all, and candidates will find them beneficial for their personal learning and studying.
