Tutoring is traditionally subject specific and focuses on subject based skills such as chemistry equations, algebra or history. Often students can become dependent on their tutor to achieve desired results. In some cases, this can result in trouble for the students in test and exam conditions without the support of their tutor.

Coaching is focused on developing skills required across all subjects such as organisation of information, time management, structuring responses and stress management. This holistic approach to study promotes independence and helps students develop skills that can help in all subjects in school and beyond.
