SKYPE CLASSES ARE AVAILABLE. Classes on SKYPE can be individual or easily shared by more than one student, each one in a different house, if needed. SKYPE classes allow for less movement outside your house, which is necessary in the present pandemic circumstances. Apart from this, online SKYPE classes can be a convenient way of saving transport time and allow for a greater choice of time-slots, because they are independent from parents’ availability. Same time, same rates, same service and essay checking in real time with screen sharing. Contact me and I will send you an email with more detailed information. I will also assist you in installing and starting to work on Skype, if you need. And I am of course authorised by Working with Children Check Clearance.
My professional and academic experience allows me to offer a number of services to a wide variety of students at different levels:
highly comprehensive essay writing training, tasks tailored to each students, specific homework activities, handouts written or edited by me, access to a personal Shared Folder in DropBox with study-guides and many different kinds of source materials. Plus personalised telephone assistance and guidelines for general school's performance and study management, school's homework assistance, development of critical thinking skills and Selective Entry Schools Exam training, if needed. This is not something generally offered, certainly not at this level, and you must consider that this is included in your fees, unlikely any usual tuition assistance.

THESIS REVISION & EDITING: Quotes are based on the number of words
Revision and editing of theses and other major papers are not charged by the hour (it would be too expensive) but on number of words. Specific quotes will also take into account the complexity of the paper and the level of revision requested. This can vary according, in particular, to the level of English of your final draft. Other factors, like formatting, tables, notes, referencing systems, etc., can also determine differences in the quote.
