Background

I have worked with hundreds of students in my 25 year career, including 23 undergraduates from a variety of disciplines working on their essays and dissertations. The average result has been a 2:1, with three students achieving First Class.

Callum

A lovely person, both kind and understanding while also not lax in making sure I got my work done! She was a massive help in getting my degree, especially because she is a creative writer, and my degree was partially based on that. Would happily work with her again, should I have cause to!
