English Tutor - Literature and Classics enthusiast specialising in critical essays and general editing/proofreading.

Methodology

I have taught/tutored in many different areas, so I'm always able to find a way to explain difficult concepts to students.
Students with an interest in literature and the classics will benefit the most from my expertise, but my skills will also apply to any general English subjects.

Background

For all your editing needs!
I am a prolific reader of the classics and went to university for a Bachelor of Creative Writing. I was the unofficial tutor of struggling students in my English class in high school and have worked with fiction writers as an editor. I also have a background in medical science and proofreading/editing scientific essays.

Perfect! I had Kathleen proofread my assignment, she was excellent and gave feedback. She responds appropriately and in a timely manner, would definitely recommend her.

Kathleen's response

What you can improve: mostly just check your references and look for the original source when you're referencing from a website (they often list the source of the information on the page); or try to find the same information from a more reputable website (Eg Johns Hopkins Medicine is better than Mayo Clinic).

Kathleen was very approachable and responded in time. She helped me proofread my assignment (postgrad level) and gave me great feedback.

Kathleen has an impressive understanding of the english language, particularly with regard to sentence structure, vocabulary and grammar. She also has a love for classic english literature, which is essential for effective critical analysis and essay writing. I can not recommend her enough!
