Academic Study Skills Tutors help students to refine their technique when researching, preparing, presenting or writing work for their university course.
You can engage with us in several ways:
SDSS provides an ‘Ask a Tutor’ service, which is available via email between 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Friday. We offer answers to brief queries relating to Study Skills. You can expect a response within twenty-four hours during weekdays. The service is most suitable for specific referencing queries or directions to relevant resources. If you require detailed and extensive advice, we recommend that you reserve a separate Study Skills appointment.

Our support enables you to refine your academic skills for effective study and learning. We advise upon a wide range of topics, including, fundamental basics such as grammar, punctuation and academic writing styles. We also advise upon more complex tasks, for example, a range of referencing techniques, academic analysis, reflective writing and critical engagement.
Support from an Academic Skills Tutor is free to any USW student. If you have completed a DSA assessment, you might want to find out what the Specialist Study Skills Tutors can offer you.
