« 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. »

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

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 will advise on clarity and idea development.

I offer two main services:

1 - online sessions to discuss your ideas, how to structure your 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). The comments will focus on structure (should paragraphs be moved around, do you need headings to help you organise your ideas, does a point fit better in another section etc.) and clarity (do you need to define a key term, have you given enough examples, is your argument well-explained etc.)

Some students need both options, and others only one of the two. It's completely up to you!

Ambassador

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.

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.

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.
