Expert guidance in study skills, mathematics and statistics

The Centre for Academic Development tutors offers tutorials on study skills, mathematics and statistics for Brookes students at all levels from foundation to PhD. For example, we can help you to develop skills in planning and structuring your assignments, developing your academic voice, referencing, time management, reflective writing, interpreting assignment briefs, writing literature reviews and much more.

We do not offer proofreading, but we can help you to develop the ability to be critical of your own work and improve your writing. Similarly we won’t do your maths and stats for you, but we will help you to develop the skills and confidence to succeed.
