Having graduated with a 1st in my psychology BSc in 2011, the following year I completed a MSc in neuroscience at King’s College London where I undertook a project that determined whether mitochondrial mRNA could be used to predict Alzheimer's disease (distinction). More recently, I completed a PhD for which I used fruit flies to investigate the molecular mechanisms of nervous system development. Throughout this project I also worked as a teaching assistant in undergraduate biological science lab classes, where I collaborated with academic staff to promote students' practical skills and understanding of theory.
I have been tutoring for over 6 years, endeavouring to improve students' grades and to reduce stress. In this time, I have worked with around 100 students – primarily psychology and biology undergraduates, though also MSc and PhD students – and am therefore very familiar with all of the sub-disciplines students cover in their degrees.
I mainly work as a proofreader and editor, which is orchestrated entirely via email.
My exceptional attention to detail not only improves grades for a particular piece of work, but provides insights into how to maintain the highest of standards for future assignments too. Considering that your marks will determine your degree classification and, therefore, your subsequent career prospects and income, getting your work thoroughly checked is an excellent investment.
Drawing upon an in-depth understanding of APA guidelines, I ensure that work is thoroughly checked for issues relating to grammar, flow, and academic style (e.g… citations, appropriate use of acronyms, italics, and so forth), and supplement adjustments with detailed comments about structure, the strength of arguments, and any omissions (e.g… critical analysis, lack of focus on the question). I also draw upon my extensive experience of statistics – I am the author of the book, SPSS for Students – to ensure that results are reported and discussed correctly.
For these services, I charge £30 per hour and typically cover 1,000 words per hour. Since work is completed exclusively online, I provide my bank details, allowing for transfers to be made via online banking. Typically, I can return work within 24 hours (providing I'm given a few days' notice).
For £10 per 15 minutes (£40 per hour), I also provide online video meetings, which allow students to discuss any questions or concerns they have about their work. Meetings can be as long or as short as required.
Additionally, I offer in-person meetings for £40 per hour, and am happy to meet at students' homes or at a mutually convenient location, such as a **Contact Detail Removed** or cafe.
For new students, I'm pleased to offer for free an hour-long meeting (online or in-person) or an hour's worth of proofreading/editing.
Whilst my primary goal is to enable students to be the best they can, I also strive to make their lives easier. I understand that academic schedules can be highly demanding – especially when juggling numerous other responsibilities. I therefore do my absolute best to always be available to help, ensuring that I respond to emails, texts, or calls as soon as I possibly can.

David is incredibly knowledgeable, patient and provides prompt feedback/responses. He is particularly brilliant at breaking down and explaining concepts that you may not understand in a clear and concise manner. His comprehensive understanding of format guidelines and thoroughness is invaluable.
Thank you once again David, I am incredibly grateful for all of your help and support.
I am really enjoying working with you. Your comments are really well thought out, detailed, and instructive (i.e. you give me great insights but I do the work, which is, of course, the best way to learn).
I also appreciate that you are happy to work remotely with me, not everyone can do this (and I have had people who either think this approach does not work, or they are afraid of technology).
Lastly, I appreciate how quickly you get back to me, how you manage to slot me in, how you are punctual, reliable, and you allow me to be honest, always.
I am very glad to have found you

I strongly recommend him as a tutor and I am thankful for the help that he provided me with.
Thank you for all your help
