Hi – welcome to my virtual home. I’m the Tam in HealthPsychTam, a 20 something PhD graduate originally from Cornwall and now living between there and Bath. I offer a number of services to academic institutions, organisations, charities and students of all ages, My work is grounded in the values of balance, resilience and legacy, with a focus on a holistic approach to work, study and life beyond.
Proofreading and Editing
I offer three levels of proofreading and editing services to any written material, including essays, dissertations, PhD theses, presentations, articles, journal submissions, website content, funding applications and PhD proposals. A reference service is also available. Detailed feedback is provided so that future work can be improved if desired.
Study Skills Tutoring
Study skills tutoring is a form of tutoring which enables general skills to be developed and applied to all subject choices. This type of tutoring is particularly useful for those who grasp content, but find it difficult to translate knowledge into assessments, whether coursework, essays, presentations or exams. Anxiety, stress, time management, organisation skills, note taking skills, revision techniques and essay writing are some of the topics covered. Offered remotely on a one-to-one basis or in groups of up to four.
Writing coaching enables us to work one-to-one to improve specific aspects of your writing, or to make the writing process more manageable for you. This may include writing essays, reports or articles but can also be more specific, for example focussing on critical writing skills or developing a strong argument within your work.
