    Academic Proofreading - Assignments and Dissertations (English).

    Are you looking for someone to proofread, restructure and help improve your academic writing?
    Then I might be able to help!

    I have gained experience in academic writing through my various degrees and have gone on to help high school and university students with their writing assignments (including essays, dissertations, and applications). I aim to provide students with helpful feedback on the structure, grammar, and word choice of their written work as well as making suggestions based on the guidelines and requirements of their course. I can also help with the argumentation of your piece of work and support with critical thinking but I try to ensure that your voice and style do not get lost.

    If a text is reasonably well-written then I can do around 1,500 words/hour (approx 5-6 pages depending on font size)
    If a text is poorly written then this will take longer so 1,000words/hour (approx 3-4 pages depending on font size).

    If you think this would be helpful please get in touch!

    Extra information

    Please bring your laptop, pen, and paper if needed.
    I generally complete the proofreading at home and then provide the feedback either in person/via webcam or in writing by email depending on your preference.

    International Baccalaureate Higher Level History. (Essay Writing for Papers 1, 2 and 3)
    History Higher Level can be an extremely challenging class, not only incorporating the skill of essay writing but also that of memorising swathes of facts. As a recent graduate of the IB Diploma who achieved a 7 in History HL, I know exactly what it takes to achieve the top grades. I have designed my course to gradually build upon essay structure, planning and writing as skills. We will begin by identifying weak points in your own technique and then tailor the course to what suits your needs. I will help you to be able to be prepared for a myriad of different exam topics which may show up and provide you with exam techniques which are essential for reaching the higher grades. I will assign homework for some lessons to track your progress.
