Essay, Dissertation, Research and Academic Tutoring for University Students at Undergraduate and Masters level (Edinburgh)

Methodology

Academic tutoring in essay and dissertation writing, assignment completion and essay and dissertation research for undergraduate and masters students in arts and humanities subjects. This service is designed for those who find themselves struggling or overwhelmed at university, unsure of how to approach an independent research project, or experiencing difficulty adapting to the university style of study.

I am based in Edinburgh, so this service is generally for those who can meet me in central Edinburgh. I can, however, also provide remote tutoring, discussing your work with you over the phone and sending notes and feedback on your essays/projects. I’m also happy to chat to you on the phone before we begin so we can work out if I’m able to provide the service you’re looking for.

The cost of tutoring is £20 per hour and generally we will meet for one to two hours as often as you need to work on the project of your choice; this can be an essay, poster, presentation, dissertation or whatever you feel needs work. Alternatively, we can train your academic writing skills with pieces and short projects that I can set, building up your confidence as an independent researcher and academic writer.

If you have any questions, just get in touch and I’ll get back to you with further contact details and information as quickly as possible. Tell me exactly what you’re looking for and we can arrange a time to chat or even to begin working together.

Background

I am a tutor, editor, proofreader and writer. I have two degrees from the University of Edinburgh and a proofreading qualification. For the last eight years I have been working as a proofreader, editor, tutor and writing coach. I have extensive experience working on academic essays, research and publications.

I enjoy working with people and helping them to make their work the best it can be. I know that university can be a challenging time, either due to the change in academic setting, or to the change from one country to the next, and I like helping people to overcome this and produce quality pieces of work.
