Academic Writing Advice
I can advise on all aspects of academic writing to help you improve your grades; for example:
- How to present your work well
- How to make it logical and flow well
- How to check for grammatical and spelling errors
Although I do not advise on content, I can guide you on how to include relevant knowledge in order to demonstrate your understanding.
I can suggest how to search for literature and incorporate this into your work in order to demonstrate breadth, depth and integration of literature.
Depending on your level of study, I can advise on developing your:
- Descriptive writing
- Reflective writing
- Critical analysis and evaluation
I can also check presentation of citations and reference lists.

I like to adopt the ‘What? Where? When? How? Why? and Who? approach (Kipling, 1902). I think this makes it easier to remember things and not miss out on important points when writing reflective accounts.read more
