« Both girls feel confident and are full of praise for the solid knowledge that they gained from you. They both said that they feel that they actually understand Greek better so they do not panic if they get an unknown word or sentence as they can apply the principles that you taught them. We cannot thank you enough for all your help. »

Essay, Dissertation, and Personal Statement prep, coaching, proof-reading and editing from PhD graduate with 10+ years experience

Methodology

When it comes to essays and dissertations, my focus is very strongly on plans and structure. I will help you organise your ideas in different parts and sub-parts, and advise and clarity and idea development.

I offer two main services:
1 - online sessions to discuss your ideas, how to structure you plan and organise your thoughts, and what you want to say.
2 - proofreading, editing and comments, which I will work on in my own time (and charge per hour of work).
Some students need both options, and others only one of the two. It's completely up to you!

I am very well organised and reliable. I always spend a lot of time preparing lessons so I can be ready to answer unexpected questions! I am also very adaptable, and enjoy working with various types of people, who have different motivations for learning. Tailoring the content of the lessons to the needs and abilities of the student is something that I always try to centre my work on. I have always received extremely positive feedback (and excellent exam results when applicable) from my students, but I also take criticism very well and am quick to change the content or rhythm of my lessons when I see a certain approach is not working.

Background

My name is Déborah, I have an Msc and a PhD in Classics from Edinburgh University. I started tutoring while I was studying, and never stopped!

I can prepare students for all Scottish and English exams, up to the BA. I also have experience helping students work on their Post-Graduate or Master's dissertation. I offer help on editing and proofreading essays, dissertations and personal statements, as well as support in organising your thoughts, working on a plan, and developing your ideas.

Déborah's CV

I have a Licence ès Lettres from the Sorbonne University, and an Msc and PhD in Classics from the University of Edinburgh. I teach Classics, Classical Studies, Latin, and Ancient Greek (as well as French and Philosophy) from complete beginners to post-grad students. I'm familiar with both the English and Scottish syllabus.

When it comes to proof-reading, editing and essay/dissertation writing, my focus is on structure and organisation, and helping you express your ideas clearly and making your writing easy to follow.

They both said that they feel that they actually understand Greek better so they do not panic if they get an unknown word or sentence as they can apply the principles that you taught them.

Thank you for all your hard work and time spent with Imaan. It was pleasing to see her report card and the significant difference she made in her french from the start of the year until now.
