Perfect! Marcella is incredible. Not only did she offer guidance and support throughout a very stressful period but provided me with hands on commitment and help throughout. You can definitely rely on her, and will not regret your choice! Thank you Marcella.

Marcella's response

I have been helping Anastasia with her literature review and research - support she tells me she has found very constructive.

Alex

Perfect! As an adult learner with dyslexia seeking additional tuition on writing at a postgraduate level, it can be quite a challenge to get the appropriate help! However, the support I have received from Marcella has been non-judgemental, focused and most importantly of all not overwhelming! She has provided me with excellent support thus far and I'm looking forward to continue to develop my writing ability with her! :)

Marcella's response

Alex is a great student - enthusiastic and responsive. We are making good progress and had a very constructive conversation this morning about the next stage of his work.

Marcella was a great dissertation tutor! When I came to her my dissertation was in its early stages and I was very stressed out about it. After working with Marcella over a period of weeks my dissertation really transformed making me feel more confident in my submission. Marcella helped me with grammar, structure and making sure my writing made sense. I am happy to say I got a First in my dissertation, which I don't think would have been possible without her :)

I would highly recommend Marcella as a dissertation tutor.
She is very talented and has lots of experience in this field. If you are struggling, contact Marcella!!

I have worked as an academic in higher education with Marcella for many years. During that time she has supervised hundreds of undergrad and post-grad student dissertations. Her students often mentioned her empathy, understanding and the fact that she actively listened to them. Marcella's research and pedagogy skills are second to none and her supervision and student support are stellar. Her previous work with students has demonstrated her innate ability to get to the nub of an academic argument and to narrow the thesis, thereby enabling her students to offer sound conclusions and in several cases - new knowledge. I can guarantee that Marcella will help you craft your dissertation into tip-top condition. The rest is up to you ...

I experienced Marcella as a very kind and experienced lecturer. I had fun in her lessons and always had the feeling I received the mark I deserved for my work. In case of questions I could always ask her and I got helpful advice. I think my classmates made the same experience. I enjoyed Marcellas classes very much.

I worked with Marcella at Solent University when she was the course leader for the Media Production Top Up. I found her to be a supportive, sympathetic and engaging course leader. I would have no problem recommending her.

Tim

I have worked with Marcella in education for a number of years. She is very knowledgable about the subjects she teaches and is able to communicate well and develops a positive rapport with students of all abilities. Marcella is skilled in identifying areas for an individual student’s development and she helps him or her devise effective strategies and develop confidence to progress in the subject.

Interview with Marcella

QUESTION 01 | 08
When did you develop an interest in your chosen field and in private tutoring?
Marcella — I have always been interested in education, particularly at the higher levels. After a skiing accident, I had to give up the university post I loved. I spent two years reading every novel I could find and then my sister asked me to discuss her Master's dissertation with her. I had forgotten how much I loved the problem solving, the editing and the interaction between ideas. We both got a great deal out of the process and it was then I decided to be a private tutor.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Tell us more about the subject you teach, the topics you like to discuss with students (and possibly those you like a little less).
Marcella — My own academic interests include English literature, Philosophy, Education theory, Research Methodology and Marketing. However, in my role as academy supervisor I have also worked with students on Psychology, Music Production, Promotional Media, Creative and Media Writing, Public Relations, Nutrition, Criminology, Economics and Business administration.
QUESTION 03 | 08
Did you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
Marcella — My most memorable teachers were always the quirky ones; the teachers who brought the subject to life through their infectious enthusiasm for it.
QUESTION 04 | 08
What do you think are the qualities required to be a good tutor?
Marcella — To listen, to start from where the student is, to avoid preconceptions, to work at a student's own pace, to be flexible and available, to be systematic, organised and creative, to be a good communicator, to be calm and offer a safe space where students can learn and develop.
QUESTION 05 | 08
Provide a valuable anecdote related to your subject or your days at school.
Marcella — I always had lots of ideas but quickly moved onto other new and exciting ones. My art teacher used to say that ideas are good but you have to see them through. It wasn't until I was at university that I really embraced this idea. My Philosophy class lecturer told us that to be a creative performer you have to know the rules. He equated it with a game of chess: to play chess creatively you need to fully understand the rules of the game. I have always remembered this and try to marry the rules and a creative approach in everything I do.
QUESTION 06 | 08
What were the difficulties or challenges you faced or still facing in your subject?
Marcella — When I was young I found exams very stressful, like most people. I found that I performed best when I was calm and to be calm I had to prepare. Planning is key.
QUESTION 07 | 08
Do you have a particular passion? Is it teaching in general or an element of the subject or something completely different?
Marcella — I suppose I love the process of making sense of the world. This is why my favourite activity is to work with students in finding ways for them to package their ideas and to present their arguments.
QUESTION 08 | 08
What makes you a Superprof (besides answering this interview questions :-P)?
Marcella — Being a good tutor requires a complicated skill set. Thirty years working with a diverse range of disciplines and students has given me the knowledge and confidence to provide the best possible service.
