Coronavirus update.

Based on the current advice from the UK and Scottish Governments, I have suspended all in-person tutoring for the timebeing. I am, however, still able to offer advice by email, telephone or online video conferencing. Send me an email detailing your needs, and I’ll be glad to advise as to my availability.


If you’re looking to making quick and lasting improvements to your study and writing practices, I can help. I specialise in the following:

  • Exam preparation
  • Drafting and editing essays, reports, dissertations and theses
  • Preparing for oral presentations

I tailor my support to the needs and goals of individuals. If you have specific requests, I would be happy to discuss them and put together a plan to suit you.


I’ve been teaching and tutoring English and writing for over a decade, working at universities in the UK, Europe and the United States. I’m currently writing my PhD in English literature at the University of Edinburgh. To learn more about my background, visit the About Me page.



I’m able to travel throughout Edinburgh and the surrounding area, and I’m happy to meet during the day, in the evening, or on weekends. I have plenty of experience working with young people — for parents or guardians, I can gladly provide a DBS check.

If you’d like to discuss how I can help you or someone else make real progress with your writing, just drop me an email:



My rates take into account a variety of factors, including travel and the number of sessions booked, but they are always highly competitive.
