« Perfect! Chris has been an enormous help with my dissertation and thoroughly appreciates what is required.

Methodology

The most important part of any long report is the structure. If you have not already begun, we will spend some time together making a skeleton for you to fill.

Once you have started writing, or if you have already begun I will read and annotate finished work and go over my suggestions via skype / zoom / etc.

Experience

I have a PhD in Mechanical Engineering (no corrections), a Master's in Palaeontology (Distinction) and a Bachelors in Marine Biology and Oceanography.

I have published articles in top journals and written a book.

I have supported students and professional researchers from the planning and preparation stage, through writing, editing and submission.

Perfect! Chris has been an enormous help with my dissertation and thoroughly appreciates what is required. In addition, he has a very good teaching technique that provides clear guidance on how I can improve in areas or correct mistakes (including worked examples). Currently I feel more confident that my dissertation will be completed to a much higher standard than it would have done before.

Dr Christian's response

John is responsive to messages and has paid upfront. He has come to the lessons prepared and submits work with plenty of time for it to be read before the lesson. He speaks English as a mother tongue, and is familiar with skype etc.

He has been a great student so far, and has a strong grasp on his subject matter. We have mostly been learning about how to prepare and structure a large report, and how to use some academic software.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Dr Christian assisted greatly with my dissertation. As I progressed he had a real talent for understanding what I wanted to achieve for each chapter and would guide me to ensure I achieved what I had set out to do. He was able to grasp my subject matter (oil and gas engineering) in an instant and make his lesson relevant. He has a very good teaching technique that provides clear and concise instructions on where one can make improvements including worked examples.

Chris was the perfect help for my dissertation and MSc thesis! Exactly what I needed and would highly recommend. I was doing software engineering and he gave me all the advice I needed at the time.

M
Max

Chris proofread my PhD thesis and made really helpful comments - his support was invaluable!

Charlie

I met Christian at university, while studying for my Mathematics degree. He was a great help in my final year, especially whilst I was writing my dissertation. We engaged in numerous thought provoking conversations on the relationship between modularity and expansion factor, in social network graphs, a topic that was deeply embedded in my final piece. As well as this, Christian spent time teaching me how to use different computer programs, which helped me demonstrate the hypothesis I was working towards proving.

I ended up with a 94% score on my dissertation and was given a recognition award of this from the Dean of the university - this would not have been possible without Christians help.

Alex

Christian helped me extensively with my MSc Thesis. Giving me invaluable feedback throughout the process. He provides impeccable attention to detail, a thorough understanding of academic writing, and a commendable and methodological approach to presenting research.

Gloria

Having always been a top student at school, I expected to do just as well at university. Unfortunately, I partied a little too hard as a fresher and had to resit my first year.

Dr Chris has been amazing in helping me resit my exams. He's thoughtful and empathetic and such a great tutor. He brought me up to speed in a very short period of time and I passed with great results. I definitely feel like I'm back on track and that's all thanks to Dr Chris!

P
Philip

Chris helped me in advance of writing my MA thesis. We discussed what an examiner would be looking for and Chris drew on his academic background to help suggest how I should construct my work. Overall, I would highly recommend Chris as he is a friendly and very personable.
