How TSA Tuition will Improve your TSA Score
The Ultimate level of Support – TSA Tuition allows you to control the pace, content and difficulty of the tutorials. You’ll get one-on-one time with an expert TSA Tutor who scored in the top 10% nationally. They’ll be able to focus on your strengths & weaknesses to ensure rapid improvement. You’ll also get instant access to all of our TSA resources like online lectures & mock tests so you can start preparing straight away whilst we set up your tutor for you.
We asked our TSA tutors to give some examples of past sessions that they’ve conducted to give you ideas about what is possible. However, it must be stressed that these sessions are a two-way process and the more you put in- the more you’ll get out. Students who tend to improve the most are also the ones who persistently ask their tutor for focus on their weaknesses, week after week!

I don’t think I would have done as well in my test if it wasn’t for the encouragement and support from my tutor, who e-mailed me on the day of the test to see how I had done.

How to use your 30 hours of TSA tuition
Our TSA tuition gives you the best possible chance of getting a strong score in the exam. You will get 30 hours of expert tutoring consisting of:

Problem Solving questions make up the other half of the TSA Section 1. Problem Solving questions are often said to be difficult to prepare for, however, our expert tutors have plenty of experience teaching for these types of problems.

Tackle those Problem Areas
Bespoke tuition sessions are a two-way process and the more you put in – the more you’ll get out. Whilst tutors are happy to cover topics that will undoubtedly be useful, you will gain more from the sessions if you come prepared and armed with questions. Students who tend to improve the most are also the ones who persistently ask their tutor for focus on their weaknesses, week after week! We asked our TSA tutors to give some examples of past sessions that they’ve conducted to give you ideas about what is possible.
“One common scenario that frequently crops up is the student who struggles with critical thinking. To start off, I first go over what each of the important keywords mean, e.g. Assumption, Flaw, Conclusion etc. Then we start by looking at relatively simple examples and then slowly build into harder ones. I point out key words that are usually ‘hidden-away’ in the passage that often change the answer and then we examine more difficult questions (usually of a greater length). When they start getting these right, I do timed drills to see if they can use the skills they’ve acquired under time pressure. This does wonders for their confidence and I finish the session with some homework that includes more critical thinking questions which we review in the next session.”
Jamie, TSA Tutor
“The TSA essay is frequently neglected by lots of students, normally because they don’t like writing essays and have never really been taught how to do so. The essay is actually quite straightforward and easy to do well on if students follow a routine. Before the session, I ask the student to write a timed essay and bring it with them. This allows me to gauge their level and pitch my teaching appropriately. We use their essay as an example of good and bad things- e.g. how much space is used to answer each part of the question, the strength of the introduction, breadth vs. depth of argument. I stress to them the importance of planning essays and we then plan several essays together. We then conclude by examining good and bad introductions and conclusions to the same essay title so they can see the impact of starting and finishing an essay well. I finish by setting them 2 further essays to do at home which we review in the next session.”
David, TSA Tutor
