Superb tutor - Michael is extremely knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with for RS.
Michael`s help with my history essays at a university level has been invaluable. He has not only helped me to explore avenues of arguments I had not thought of before but also shown me how to strengthen and consolidate my existing argument making my work more coherent and cohesive.
His extensive and rounded historical knowledge also means he was able to advise me on key historians and further readings that would contribute to my overall understanding of the topic as well as opening me up to different historiographical debates.
He is also very reliable and gives you detailed feedback very quickly. I also found that emailing my work to Michael at different stages also helped me to manage my time more successfully.
Thank you very much Michael!
Michael is a very experience teacher and he put in extra efforts to customize the tuition to the student. We are very glad to have been helped by him.
Michael provided me with professional assistance with my dissertation in my final year of university. He provided me with helpful academic sources to benefit my research stage, and proof read and amended my work several times. His assistance helped my to boost my dissertation grade from B to an A. I would strongly recommend him to all those needing help with their dissertations and other academic projects.
Thank You Michael
