Laura Snell - Language Services - Academic Support, Proofreading, Research & Tutoring
Testimonials
 
I contacted Laura to review and update my CV. She did a fantastic job! She reformatted it to a much higher, more professional standard as well as writing some of the content and rewording the existing content. Her attention to detail is outstanding and communication was exceptional with regular discussions and update emails to ensure the CV reflected my experience and I was happy with the new format. Laura made the whole process enjoyable and the result was an excellent CV that recruiters commented on the high standard. I would recommend Laura without hesitation and will undoubtedly work with her again on other projects. (August 2017)

My 16 year old daughter has struggled with English and comprehension all throughout school. She has found the subject difficult and boring. With Laura, my daughter has looked forward to the sessions, embraced preparation for her revision studies with a positive enthusiasm, and found Laura's approach supportive and encouraging. In addition, my daughter's school teachers have seen a good improvement in school effort grades. Language and the themes of English literature can sometimes be tricky for my daughter, but Laura has helped her prepare for the GCSEs in accordance with all the relevant specifications. (Parent of GCSE student, June 2017)

Laura's patient and thorough approach has been of immense benefit to my son in preparation for his GCSE English Language and Literature. Laura has been extremely well organised, punctual and reliable and has delivered engaging sessions which have encouraged and challenged my son to improve. I would highly recommend Laura's tutoring services. (Parent of GCSE student, June 2017)

The service which I have received from Laura Snell has honestly been outstanding. Laura kindly took the time to listen to everything I had to say and helped with proofreading my undergraduate dissertation. Laura was very professional, kind and polite, and the service she provided was amazing. Laura used track changes on my dissertation and explained how to use this, and it was phenomenal! It was so easy and clear to use. The service Laura provided meant that any grammatical errors were highlighted, the content flowed smoothly and the whole document was proofread. I can honestly say that this service has helped me tremendously and I highly recommend Laura's service. I do not think I could have done it without her, I will always be grateful, thank you Laura. (Courtney, April 2017)
 
Laura has just finished proofreading my dissertation and she did an exceptional job. The service she provides is very fast. She was very responsive to the emails I sent her and answered my questions very well. I would 100% recommend Laura Snell - Language Services. (UCLan Undergraduate Student, April 2017) 
  
Laura has provided an excellent transcription service. Her transcripts are very accurate, formatted professionally and delivered very promptly. This has enabled me to be more productive in my research activities, highly recommend working with her! (Anonymous, LUMS)
 
 Laura has been amazing with my 15 year old son Paul - who has autism - in the run up to his GCSE's. He really enjoyed her method of teaching and looked forward to going to see her. He's always struggled with English (to put it mildly) and had consistently failed the English exams. So imagine his delight when he was only 3 marks off an A grade in his English Mock! He said afterwards, 'It's the first time I've ever understood the questions and known how to answer them'. Since going to Laura he's even started writing a book (hand-written, not typing) and is currently working on chapter 27. It's a delight to listen to him as he reads what he's written aloud to me every evening before bed. So even Mum gets a bedtime story! (May 2016)
 
I'm really happy that you helped me during my MSc course. Your feedback was very good and also your proofreading. I have no negative comments ever. I highly recommend all my friends to work with you and I hope to work with you on my PhD. (S. Alqubaisi, February 2016)
  
Laura Snell Language Services have provided me with excellent data collection service which has been efficient and often requested within tight timescales which are met.  I have also been the recipient of accurate and well-organised transcripts of a range of audio materials.  The turnaround of work is superb and the service provided is always friendly.  (Paula Doherty, Researcher)
  
Before I started having sessions with Laura, I hated English! I found it really difficult and boring. Laura helped me to enjoy the subject. In the sessions Laura helped me to become more confident and my grades have improved a lot. Laura is kind and friendly, she always made sure that I knew when I was doing well! Laura always gave me feedback that was constructive which has helped me to improve. Thanks Laura, you have been awesome! (Lewis, June 2015)

Lewis has become more confident with English since starting lessons with Laura. She took the time to understand Lewis' interests and adapted her sessions to ensure that they were relevant to his needs making the sessions more interesting. As a parent of a child who has always found English very difficult, and with GCSEs looming, I was anxious that Lewis was going to struggle with his exams. Laura provided regular feedback and alleviated my anxieties.  I would highly recommend Laura as a tutor, a true investment in my son's future. Thanks Laura. (Lewis' mother, June 2015)
 
 Thanks a lot for all the help you gave me. Your work is perfect and flawless. (MA Student, January 2015)
 
 Laura is an exceptional tutor.  She is very approachable and accommodating (willing to speak late in the evenings and early in the mornings). When completing a piece of work Laura ensures you still have ownership of the work.  When completing the tutoring Laura values your opinions and rationale for the content of the assignments.  Laura offers such a wide range of support and has supported me from structuring the assignment to the submission.  The tutoring was completed using valuable feedback tools: Skype and word tracking.  Laura keeps you informed about her progress with the work at all times.  She is excellent at proofreading work for sentence construction, grammar and punctuation, and is very professional in providing the suggested modifications.  I highly recommend Laura as a tutor and will be contacting her in the future for my assignments and dissertation.  (MEd student, November 2014) 
  
Laura Snell provides a fast and accurate service, allowing me to be far more productive than I was previously. Her transcriptions arrive perfectly formatted, if not on time, earlier.  (July 2014)
 
 Laura has been my language support tutor for 4 years. During this time she has helped me to structure my essays, develop my academic language and because of her hard work, flexibility and determination, she helped me progress from my undergraduate degree to my PhD. Laura never leaves me in the dark and her work is the best. Without her help and support, I would not be where I am today. THANK YOU.  (PhD student, May 2014)
  
Laura recently proofread my doctoral thesis from start to finish (120,000 words). I cannot recommend her highly enough. Her approach to my work was meticulous and thorough. Her use of  the ‘track changes’ function in Word was both helpful and clear at a time when I really couldn’t see the wood for the trees!  She read each chapter for grammatical errors,  as well as checking sentence construction, readability and consistency  prior to submission, to improve the overall quality of my work. We came to a clear understanding regarding deadlines and  spoke via telephone to clarify any comments. Laura was professional, conscientious and approachable at all times and I wouldn’t hesitate to use her services in future for any proofreading needs, no matter the size of the document.  (Postgraduate Research Student,  November 2013)
  
Laura proofread my autobiographical manuscript (just over 100,000 words). She methodically went through the manuscript to correct grammatical errors and spelling mistakes, and also to identify any inconsistencies.  Laura was happy to chat on the phone about any queries I had, and she kept me informed about her progress.   Laura provided an accurate, thorough and friendly proofreading service, and I would definitely recommend her.  (E. Pilley, May 2013)
  
Laura has assisted me on two separate occasions; the first to amend/prepare my eldest son's CV and the second to assist my younger son with his English Language work.  On both occasions her work was faultless and her manner was friendly and professional, but equally important, she was able to handle two teenage boys with the tact and diplomacy necessary to get them to listen!  I would highly recommend Laura to anyone needing any sort of assistance with English, proof reading etc. (W. Cookson, September 2012)
