What We Do
Here at Tim Foot Study Skills we publish study skills guides and produce resources for teaching study skills. We’ve been doing this since 1996. To find out what our customers are saying about us click here (Teacher Testimonials).
Tim’s approach to writing study skills resources is pretty straightforward. He identifies a key study skills area, distills out the core components and gives students straightforward, realistic tips for mastering the skill.
Short sections, small paragraphs and bullet point information. No theory. No waffle. No padding.
Who We Are
Officially we are Tim Foot Ltd but we trade as Tim Foot Study Skills and publish under the name Tim Foot Publications. The names took us a long time to think up!
Tim Foot Study Skills is a family business consisting of Tim and Fiona Foot. Our children, who have both recently left university, assist us in developing new products and are always making suggestions about improving the study guides and the business. Tim’s Mum and Dad are also a key part of the team during busy periods.
Meet The Team
– Director, Author, Box Shifting
Tim has been in and around secondary education for over 30 years.
He began his career in teaching and was a teacher for nearly 10 years, becoming Head of Department.
Tim started running study skills seminars in 1991 and has presented sessions at hundreds of schools all over the country involving hundreds of thousands of students. All seminar programmes were specially designed by Tim and delivered through innovative activities and approaches.
He wrote his first study skills guide Revision Cracked! (GCSE) in 1999 and has since gone on to write three more titles; Surviving Your Workload! (Sixth Form), How Parents Can Help! (GCSE) and most recently Revision Cracked! First Steps (KS3). The combined sales of these guides is well in excess of 500,000 copies.
The ideas and suggestions contained in these study guides have been hugely influenced by Tim’s face-to-face contact with the many students who have attended his seminars. All these titles are regularly updated.
Tim also spent a period of 3 years immediately after teaching on secondment to the electronics company GCE-Marconi in a role jointly sponsored by Essex Advisory Service and the Company. In his role of Education/Industry Liaison, he was responsible for developing links between Essex schools and the GEC Group of companies.
Tim recently hung up his PowerPoint for good and no longer runs study skills seminars, instead concentrating on classroom resources for teaching revision and study skills.
Tim loves running, yoga, conservation work, cooking hearty traditional food and supports West Ham United and Springfield Town.
