Winning Tutor of the Year at the ICB awards was recognition of how hard our tutors work
Educator and motivator- your Open Study College tutor is here to help you improve your knowledge and understanding. To help you boost your job prospects.
Contact your tutor about anything to do with your course. If you want some extra clarification on a topic, or if there was something you didn't immediately understand- just send an email.
Your tutor will mark your assignments and tell you how to improve.
Our tutors have been enlisted for their outstanding professional backgrounds. We only recruit the best and most qualified individuals. In fact, our commitment to quality was recognised in 2014 when we won 'Training Provider of the Year' and our bookkeeping tutor, Caroline Wren won 'Tutor of the Year.'
Learning from home doesn’t mean that you are on your own - you have full support from a tutor. Our tutors help you every step of the way, you can contact them as regularly as you want.
We recently received these comments from a former student which we reproduce with kind permission:
"I did the level 2 computerised bookkeeping course through your College and had Caroline as my tutor.
Bear in mind, when considering what I have to say, that I was an academic with the OU for 20 years, was involved in writing courses, and also tutored students.
I have done a lot of study in my time and I would like to say that studying with the College has been one my best educational experiences.
The course material was excellent, the assignments and practice exam extremely helpful and Caroline was the best tutor I have come across. She is knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Her comments on my queries were timely and exceptional, and it was in no small part due to her support that I was able to pass my exam with 98%.
She not only does her tutoring job well, but clearly takes an interest in her students. She even offered (unbidden) invaluable help with my L2 manual exam which I did today (even though I had studied it with another college). You have a star tutor in Caroline and I hope the College appreciates how much she contributes to its high quality image.
I have not copied these comments to Caroline, but I hope you will convey them, and my appreciation, to her."
