USYD Science Tutor Antigone
Hi, I'm Antigone! VERY RESPONSIVE
I'm a USYD student studying Science.
I am offering my services to proofread and edit undergraduate psychology and neuroscience research reports and essays.
I have obtained two degrees from the University of Sydney including a Bachelor of Science (Hons Class I) and a Master of Philosophy (Neuropsychology). I was the recipient of the Anatomy and Histology Honours Summer Scholarship (2014), Nancy Innes Prize (2016), Research Training Potential Scholarship (2017) and Young Investigators Award (2018).
I was previously employed by the University of Sydney as a psychology tutor for 5 years from 2016-2020. I conducted face to face tutorials, prepared lesson material, developed marking rubrics, graded research reports and provided exam feedback. I have also tutored psychology students privately from ACU and UNE.
I am currently employed by Macquarie University as a neuroscience tutor and demonstrator. I conduct face to face tutorials, coordinate computer-based laboratory practicals, grade laboratory activities and provide exam feedback.
I know the ins and outs of writing undergraduate assignments, honours theses, postgraduate theses, research proposals and research publications. Most importantly, I know exactly what tutors look for!
I will provide comprehensive feedback on:
- Title page
- Establishing a research rationale
- Comprehension of research studies
- Statistical principles
- Theoretical and practical implications of research
I charge a flat fee of $80 to review assignment drafts with a short turn around time. I offer tutoring sessions via Zoom to help you plan your assignment for $60/h.
PLEASE advise your university, degree and subject code in your enquiry.
Looking forward to hearing from you!

Antigone was an amazing tutor for PSYC2016 this semester. I was very anxious about writing a research report because it was the first time I've had to do so. However, she was able to patiently guide me through the process. She clearly explained the structure of a research report step-by-step and gave me a lot of tips on how to research and write a good report. She also answered any questions I had very thoroughly. She was also extremely friendly and professional so it was very enjoyable working with her.

As my first tutor for Psychology from StudentVIP, Antigone has been a wonderful support during the semester.
The initial consultation session allows you to feel comfortable, express what you're looking for and she clearly steps you through her process. In the case of proofreading, she consistently ensures to follow up with you if you're on track over the course of your essay (which I found extremely helpful in terms of accountability).
Friendly with great communication, quick proofreading turnarounds and eagle-eyed edits. It's been a lovely experience to have Antigone as a tutor.

Antigone is a great tutor who was able to clearly explain to me the process of writing a psychology report. As someone who had not taken a science unit before, I found writing reports fairly difficult. However, I feel quite comfortable with it now and was very pleased with my results.
Antigone is very supportive and clearly shows that she wants you to do well. I also appreciated the much needed constructive criticism that allowed me to see where I was going wrong.
If you need help with writing reports or just want some feedback from an experienced academic, I would highly recommend Antigone.

Antigone is an amazing psychology tutor! Her stellar career in academia shines through in her teaching ability. Not only does she provide detailed and constructive research report feedback, she also creates teaching aides and resources for her students! Antigone is a dedicated tutor who will always go the extra mile. I received a HD for my first research report and could not have done it without Antigone! I will definitely use her for future psychology assignments :)

Antigone is a supportive and knowledgeable tutor who I highly recommend.
I had Antigone my first major research report during PSYC102 and was extremely happy with my results. She provided helpful feedback, clear explanations and open communication.
The experience gave me the confidence and reassurance I needed to move forward with my degree.
Antigone is a wonderful tutor to work with!

Antigone is conscientious, driven and supportive tutor! I reached out to Antigone to assist me with my postgraduate teaching application and found her revisions to be thorough, honest and to the point. Her impeccable organisational and time management skills allow her to provide written feedback quickly. She is motivated to create a valuable learning experience for her students to ensure they conquer academic challenges. If you are seeking a professional tutor with strong disciplinary knowledge who will strive for academic excellence, look no further than Antigone!

Antigone is an incredibly capable tutor and I could not recommend her enough. Not only is she extremely qualified in the areas she teaches and tutors, but she is also passionate about the content.
I have no doubt that Antigone's skills and comprehensive feedback will make you a better student. Her guidance and support can only help you improve and turn those P's into HD degrees.

Antigone has an amazing ability to turn an average piece of writing into a critical analysis worthy of being published in the Lancet. She achieves this through respectful feedback and constructive criticism. Her use of detail and step by step instructions in her feedback is extremely useful when editing assignments and allows the student to improve on their writing for future assignments.
I had the privilege of having Antigone as a tutor during my Graduate Certificate in Infection Prevention and Control and despite my subjects not being one of her specialities; Antigone was able to use her skills and knowledge in language and essay format to help me transform my credits into HDs!
Not only is she an extremely knowledgeable in her own field, she is able to extend her knowledge and abilities to other fields of science and scientific writing.
If you are looking for a professional, intelligent and supportive tutor, I would highly recommend Antigone.

I had Antigone as a tutor for Brain and Behaviour (PSYC2015). It's a tricky subject but I felt very supported with Antigone as my tutor. She was extremely prompt with responding to emails, and was always willing to help me.
The feedback she provided for assessments was incredibly detailed and extensive. It throughly explained where I had gone wrong and how I could improve. The extensive nature of her feedback clearly indicated the reasoning behind my marks.
Antigone went above and beyond the tutor role and really made me feel comfortable in a subject that challenged me. I would strongly recommend her as a tutor!

Antigone is a competent tutor who is passionate about her role. She is highly driven and focused on ensuring her students succeed and achieve their goals. Antigone is extremely organised and has excellent communication skills. This is demonstrated in her ability to provide clear and thorough feedback on essays and research reports, in a short period of time. She is able to provide you with tips and advice that will help you achieve the desired grade you’ve always wanted.
If you require academic support and want someone who is highly knowledgeable in the psychology and neuroscience field, I would look no further. I highly recommend Antigone as she has supported me in the past and I found her an absolute delight to work with!
