« As a mature student having not studied for years being faced with having to produce degree level academic writing was hugely daunting. Diane was pivotal to my success in achieving my degree. Diane seemed to have an instinctive insight into what l needed. Full of enthusiasm and ideas, at times l would waste precious time going down an incorrect path. Initially l needed to focus on the basics ensuring l was answering the actual question and offering the examiners what they wanted. In time once l had mastered such skills as layout, flow and of course referencing l became a critical thinker and writer. Diane helped me to focus my ideas and channel my views in order to create analytical assignments. On a personal level Diane was always available for support and l always felt extremely comfortable sharing my concerns. Diane has allowed me to develop both academically and personally. I would not hesitate to recommend her and cannot emphasise enough the benefits of such support. Thankyou Diane. »

Please send your draft as a Word attachment and the module guidelines (including the aims and learning outcomes) so I can provide written feedback.

I am an academic study skills tutor at a university, specialising in proof reading and essay writing. I help a wide variety of students from business, health, construction management and engineering. It is not the subject but the structure, layout and meeting the learning outcomes that I help with.

I have been fortunate to have received tutorials from Diane and I can confidently say from my experience, that Diane is an expert when catering to the needs of individuals.

Diane has the skills and attributes which equip her to provide tutorials that are student centred, and can adapt her methods to the individual learner. Furthermore, Diane is friendly, approachable, supportive and above all else, non-judgemental

Diane has a caring nurturing nature and this ensures that students are given the time and resources they need to get the best from their education.

Just to give one example, Diane committed herself and her time to a cohort of adult learners, including myself, who had no previous academic experience at University Level 4, 5 or 6. I invested my time by attending Diane’s tutorials and I soon noticed my grades improve.

I highly recommend Diane as a lecturer and tutor.

When I was completing my long distance degree, I found it challenging not having regular interaction with my tutor. Diane offered personalised support as I struggled particularly with my essay construction. I would recommend Diane for anybody looking for that friendly and patient help with your additional skills.
