re:focus tutoring is geared towards the particular predicaments of students with ADHD. Bright and intelligent students with ADHD can struggle in school environments geared towards the neurotypical. Our tutors cover a large range of subjects and are trained in dealing with time management and concentration challenges faced by these students. Simple techniques and exercises can help children fulfil their academic potential and achieve good, if not excellent, results.
Our tutors have helped students working towards GCSE’s, A levels, IB and university degrees. As well as aiding understanding of specific subjects we can advise on Personal Statements, essay writing, note taking, summarising and exam technique.
We are also able to provide mentoring for university students as they acclimatise to life after school and away from home, to enable them to flourish in new and unfamiliar environments.
Serenhedd James (SJ) has an accomplished background in tutoring and mentoring students at school and university level, both in the UK and internationally. A professional historian with a doctorate from Oxford—where he has taught since 2012—he is the author of two books and numerous articles, and a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society. He has particular experience with university entry, and has wide expertise in mentoring students at undergraduate and postgraduate level. He is passionate about education that develops the whole character, and also about equipping young people with the necessary skills to thrive during their time at school, university, and beyond.
re:focus Personal Statements is a specialised service where students applying to University can access sympathetic advice and suggestions on writing their Personal Statement from recent graduates.
The Personal Statement is a key document in securing a University place. The strict word limit and its highly condensed nature require a very specific and focussed writing style that can pose particular challenges for students with ADHD. Our advisors can guide students through the process that their Personal Statement fully and fairly reflects their abilities and enthusiasms.
Claudia and Clara have a great deal of relevant experience as well as impressive academic track records. They are sympathetic and insightful advisors who can help students define their ambitions and present themselves in the best way possible.
