« Would highly recommend Deborah. We first used her for my eldest daughter who was studying Higher Latin as a crash course in 6th Year, and she had only ever done Latin for one year as a taster in 1st Year at High School. The studying was carried out face-to-face either in our home or at Deborah's. She got an 'A'. We used her again for her younger sister, exactly the same circumstances, although all the tuition was done online and my youngest daughter never met her face-to-face. Again she got an 'A'. Both girls enjoyed their time spent with Deborah and there is absolutely no doubt whatsoever, which both girls would confirm, that their achievements in Higher Latin would not have happened without Deborah's ongoing support. If you're thinking about using her, don't hesitate. »

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

One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and response guaranteed. Déborah will plan your first lesson with care.

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.

Would highly recommend Deborah. We first used her for my eldest daughter who was studying Higher Latin as a crash course in 6th Year, and she had only ever done Latin for one year as a taster in 1st Year at High School. The studying was carried out face-to-face either in our home or at Deborah's. She got an 'A'. We used her again for her younger sister, exactly the same circumstances, although all the tuition was done online and my youngest daughter never met her face-to-face. Again she got an 'A'. Both girls enjoyed their time spent with Deborah and there is absolutely no doubt whatsoever, which both girls would confirm, that their achievements in Higher Latin would not have happened without Deborah's ongoing support. If you're thinking about using her, don't hesitate.

Deborah did a fantastic job of drawing out my kids, easing them out of their self-consciousness about speaking French, laid out a coherent structure, and assigned/covered prep work in-between sessions.

I wish I had started with her years earlier, she improved their French dramatically.

Deborah is a fantastic tutor, she helped me through my Latin A Level to get my predicted grade this summer. Her calm and thorough approach sets your mind completely at ease and allows you to make the logical steps needed towards your goal (in my case, translation). She is a genuinely lovely and kind person who will tailor the lesson to your needs completely and does so with assurance, never losing faith in your abilities. I genuinely couldn't recommend Deborah highly enough!

I had French lessons with Déborah over the last year and I thoroughly enjoyed them. She’s a very patient tutor and is always happy to adjust the lesson plans to suit her student’s needs. Déborah was also always happy to share any extra materials that could help with understanding of a subject. I highly recommend her!

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.

Aidan was so pleased with your session last night, we would be delighted to book you in for a weekly session if you agree?

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.

Thank you so much for today's lesson. THANK YOU MORE for your continued time, efforts, support and patience while tutoring Oscar.

Please know we are very BLESSED to have crossed paths with you.

First of all, a huge thank you for the outstanding tutoring that you have proved in Latin and Greek.

On Friday, we received an e-mail from W. A. offering Abigail a sixth form place.

On Wednesday, we also received intimation from W. School that they are also offering Abigail a place. But more than that, as Westminster were so impressed with Abigail's entrance exam and interview performance, they have also offered her a Queen's Scholarship.

B
Barbara

We are ever so grateful for all the help you have given both Issy and Jamie over the years; it has been so much appreciated and you are a very gifted tutor; thank you.

Wishing you every happiness and success.
