Academic tutoring in essay and dissertation writing, assignment completion and essay and dissertation research for undergraduate and masters students in arts and humanities subjects. This service is designed for those who find themselves struggling or overwhelmed at university, unsure of how to approach an independent research project, or experiencing difficulty adapting to the university style of study. Whilst I am based in Edinburgh, for the foreseeable future all tutoring will be done remotely. This can be done via Zoom, Hangouts or over the phone. This approach will usually involve both conversations and notes and feedback on your essays/projects sent via email. I’m also happy to chat to you on the phone before we begin so we can work out if I’m able to provide the service you’re looking for. The cost of tutoring is £20 per hour and generally we will chat as often as you need to work on the project of your choice; this can be an essay, poster, presentation, dissertation or whatever you feel needs work. Alternatively, we can train your academic writing skills with pieces and short projects that I can set, building up your confidence as an independent researcher and academic writer. If you have any questions, just send an email and I’ll get back to you with further contact details and information as quickly as possible.
