StudyHut Guidance for Tutors

The purpose of this site is to give you a short-hand, quick and easy way to access online resources that have been moderated, categorised and summarised by us. All of the resources have been assessed against learning aims and delivery best practice and cover all areas of the Maths and English curriculum*. Not only will this save you time but we have also designed the site so that you can easily invite your learners to use the same resources too.

Plus – it’s free to use!

Inviting a student and confidence tests

You can invite students to look at specific resources – either by adding their email addresses individually or by uploading a CSV file.

When a student is invited to look at a specific resource they will also be given the option of completing a confidence survey. We also ask them if they are happy to share the results of this confidence survey with their tutors. If you ask them to share their confidence levels with you before and after they use a resource this can give you some idea of distance travelled on that topic

StudyHut Guidance for Parents

We understand that you are keen to help your children progress with their English and maths qualifications and that you want to help them do so. Whilst this site hasn’t been specifically designed for parents, there’s no reason why you can’t use it to help your children succeed. We recommend that you sign on as a tutor (link) and follow the guidance notes we give them.

StudyHut Guidance for Students

The purpose of this site is to give you a free, short-hand, quick and easy way to access online resources that have already been moderated, categorised and summarised by us. We have also provided a very short questionnaire for you to test your confidence with various areas of the maths and/or English curriculum*. If you use this test we can then offer you links to resources we think will be the most useful for you or you can choose to share this with your tutor so that they can choose resources for you. In the description for each resource we also show how they’re delivered so you can see if they suit your learning style.

Confidence tests

These only take a moment to complete and you can take them and re-take them as many times as you like to see if you are improving.

Sometimes your tutor might invite you to use a resource and you will be asked if you are happy to share these resources with them so that they can see how you feel about certain topics.

Depending on your level of confidence certain resources may also be suggested to you to use so that you can improve your confidence levels.

Inviting a friend

You can invite friends to look at specific resources – by adding their email addresses individually.
