What we do

We do everything we ethically can to help you achieve your academic goals. With our private coaching service, we take the time to understand your unique situation and provide you with clear, actionable guidance and feedback, every step of the way.

Where allowed by universities, we also provide time-saving services such as transcription, statistical testing, editing and proofreading. These services enable you to optimise your approach by reducing time spent on low-value, non-core tasks. 

awards and accreditations

What we don’t do

We don’t offer unethical shortcuts. For example, assignment, dissertation or thesis outsourcing/writing, ghostwriting, confidential exam papers, etc.

We operate in line with the respective universities’ codes of conduct, as well as the Tutors’ Association UK’s code of ethics. Simply put, we’re here to help you grow and create your best work. This requires significant effort on both your part and ours.

Who we work with

We work with undergrad, Master and doctoral-level students across the globe, including the US, UK, Europe, Middle East, Asia and Australia. Many of our clients are adult learners, balancing the demands of a career, family and a demanding academic program.

Client map

While we can assist with research projects across a wide range of disciplines, we most commonly work within the social sciences. This includes students studying:

If your programme doesn’t fall into one of the categories above, you’re still welcome to contact us and we’ll let you know if we can help. Quite often we are able to assist.
