A-Level Essay Writing and Proof-Reading
Writing an essay is a difficult undertaking. It is designed to test your knowledge and show how well you can discipline your thoughts about it in a formal way.
A-level/Pre-U philosophy papers demand excellent essay writing skills – particularly for the 9 and 15 mark questions.
I offer an essay tutoring service designed to help you achieve the best possible grades through developing the skills required to write an excellent essay.
How It Works: You send me a copy of your essay electronically to email@example.com or use the contact button below.
Word documents are best. I will mark it in detail using the comment function and suggest specific ways in which it can be improved. I will also supply questions and recommend further reading to aid future learning.
Fees: It costs £12 per marked script. You will be able to pay online securely using PayPal or by making a direct bank transfer if you prefer. I will provide my bank details at the appropriate time.
Specific course materials for each topic of each unit are available to buy here.
My Basic Essay Skills handout can be purchased here (button below) for £2.00 – this will also be useful as a basic guide for writing essays at university.
University coursework is tough, not least because guidance outside your lectures can be difficult to find; writing skills need to be sophisticated and your research thorough. You need to ensure the structure of your work is coherent and that it reflects the degree level at which you are supposed to be working.
Having taught and examined undergraduate philosophy at Heythrop College (University of London) for nine years, I know what is required and am able to help you.
