« Perfect! If you are reading this because you need help with your dissertation, then don’t hesitate to choose Marcella. Her guidance helped me to re-write my dissertation when I realised I needed direction, and her advice always came in a positive and constructive way. Marcella was always approachable, friendly and was exactly what I needed to encourage me to keep going - particularly when I was down to the wire on time, she was there for me every time I needed her to be. When I got really stuck, Marcella always offered a tutorial by phone, and that was invaluable – it wouldn’t have mattered where I was in the world, the use of Google docs was always available, and we could have used Skype if necessary. Marcella’s service of getting work back to me was really quick, and she would always text when she sent something through so even if I was working I knew I could pick up the work as soon as I had the time. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her. »

Dedicated tutor with thirty years undergraduate and postgraduate teaching experience. I deliver guidance to British and International students on academic essay and dissertation writing.

Methodology

I provide dedicated support to both undergraduate and postgraduate students and specialise in academic writing and editorial.

I work with each student on an individual basis and focus on strengthening writing technique and research methodology. I will ask you the right questions to enable you to produce your very best work.

I offer tutorial-style sessions, tailored to your specific needs and can work with you via Skype, email, and phone (or a combination to suit).

I am very regularly available and aim to respond to my students within three hours. I understand the pressures of submitting academic work and will always be calm, friendly, sympathetic, and constructive.

Background

My career has been spent in education and I have thirty years of teaching, marking, and examiner experience at the university level.

My qualifications include

- Master of Education [MEd]
- Master of Philosophy (Research Methodology) [MPhilResMeth]
- Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing [CIMDip]
- Postgraduate Teaching Certificate [PGCE]
- Ba(Hons) Modern English Studies

I endeavour to utilise all my expertise and experience to help every student achieve their full potential. In me you will find a mentor who will work with you honestly, and without judgement: I am here to help you build the future you deserve!

Marcella's response

I have now had a number of sessions with Helena. She is a great student, responsive and positive. We are working well together and she tells me she is very happy with the way things are going.

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.
