Perfect! Sophie is literally amazing!!! She has helped me so much with my assignments I am so happy o have found her. She is lovely, friendly and extremely knowledgeable in her skill set. The sessions are fun and we get lots of work done together I would highly recommend her :)
I have dyslexia & struggle with confidence at writing and structuring essays, Sophie was very helpful giving me a plan to write and feedback on how to improve, so my grades went up from 2:2 to a first I was shocked. thank you so much
Sophie is a great writer, tutor and all rounder - she can make edits & suggests for all kinds of topics beyond her own studies. She is well versed in current affairs, policies, theories and critical thinking. I would recommend her due to her quick thinking nature and ability to adhere to deadlines. Plus she is also very friendly & helpful.
