I ensure that the student understands the study skills techniques needed to complete assignments at an advanced level. Not everyone aces their first few assignments but I will provide you with concrete information about what you did well and teach you specific techniques to improve your assignments next time.
I have been teaching and supporting Psychology and Educational studies students at HEI's and FE for over 20 years. I work hard to ensure students understand how to ace their studies and achieve the assessment results they need to progress to the next level of study.

Excellent! Paula has so far been an excellent tutor. She has exceeded my expectations, I really wanted my work to be assessed and to receive critical feedback so that I am able to improve on my academic writing and to improve how I write my essay overall. I have had two sessions so far, already I feel I have been able to apply the methods she has suggested to improve academically. I will definitely have Paula review and proofread my work again in the future.
Sobia was very focused on improving her writing skills, particularly how to construct an essay with a critical analytical focus. She readily applied my original comments regarding how to improve her writing and after the second reading it was clear to me that her writing had improved. I advised her to embrace and apply future comments about her writing from her assessors and that this would help her naturally write good academic essays. It was a pleasure working with Sobia.
