Personal Statement Preparation Tutors

Tavistock Tutors offer personal statement preparation tutors in the London area. Despite the rise in fees, competition for university places has never been fiercer. With A-Level grades also rising, universities are looking increasingly to personal statements as a decision-making tool. This is because writing about oneself is a difficult skill to master. It requires a delicate balancing act between sufficient self-promotion and unattractive boasting. In addition to this, different courses and different institutions will be looking for subtly different things in personal statements. These are exactly the kind of nuances a first time candidate could miss. This is where the skills and experience of a Tavistock Tutor can make all the difference.

All of our tutors have graduated from Redbrick, Russell group, or Oxbridge universities. Their places were gained in the face of stiff competition and in no small part due to the quality of their personal statements. They not only had the skills to write a top class personal statement, but the presence of mind to understand what separated theirs from the rest. Now they want to pass their skills and knowledge on to you. They can help with everything from writing style, spelling, and grammar to the tricky decision of what to leave out and what to include. They will even be able to point out activities you might want to take up with a view to including them in your personal statement.

When you contact Tavistock Tutors, our educational consultants are trained to ask all the right questions. Their aim will be to pair you with a tutor who has applied for your subject at your first choice institution, with success. This will ensure you make fast, accurate progress towards your goal from lesson one. In addition to this, your tutor should be able to provide you with the specific pearls of wisdom that will help take you application to the next level and distinguish you from your rivals.

So, set yourself on the path to a brighter future, with a place at your first choice university. Contact Tavistock Tutors today and ask about our personal statement tutors.
