1:1 support: guiding and supporting your learning

We provide 1:1 appointments and drop-ins for maths and statistics. All students at the University are eligible to book a 1:1. You can book as many as you need – the only restriction is that you can only book one at a time. Alternatively, you can drop-in to our centre during our opening hours and speak with an advisor. Statistics advisors are available from 10:00 - 13:00 and maths advisors are available from 13:00 - 16:00.

Our tutors are very experienced and across the team we have a good knowledge of the common maths and statistics issues students encounter.  As MASH is a stand-alone service not attached to academic departments, our 1:1s provide an alternative, more informal environment to explore any issues you are encountering with maths or statistics. Often a difficult topic can be straightened out just through another explanation from a new perspective. MASH is able to provide that support.  A little careful, directed advice at the right time can be a big step towards succeeding on your course.
