Hi, I'm Dawson!

I'm a UniMelb student studying Science.


Per hour




Started uni

My name is Dawson and I’m here to help you with the rigour of psychology undergrad/grad dip and honours. Whether you’re aiming at getting into Masters, doing a PhD, or simply wanting to get through first year I can support you on your learning journey. I have years of experience as a tutor, both in group settings (including university tutorial classes) and one-on-one sessions, and have taken these courses myself in the recent past.

I’m currently completing my Masters in Clinical Psychology at Deakin University and working as a university tutor, research assistant, and mental health support worker. I finished Honours in Psychology at Melbourne Uni in 2016 and have tutored and marked assignments in the Melbourne School of Psychological Sciences, Melbourne Graduate School of Education, and at Deakin Uni. I have a good sense of what markers are looking for and can help you meet and exceed their expectations to gain top marks.

I can help with lab report and essay writing, understanding challenging course material, overcoming stats anxiety, and preparing for exams and Masters applications/interviews.

During tutorials, I like to ask questions and engage in discussions to encourage reflection and critical thinking. I recognise that everyone brings their own skills and knowledge to the table and I like to work collaboratively to build on the strengths and talents you already possess.

For individual tutorials I charge $40/hour and conduct these via Zoom or telephone.

For advice on academic writing, you can email me a draft of your work for proofreading at a rate of $30/1000 words. My proofreading service includes comprehensive editing (spelling and grammar) and feedback (comments and suggestions) on how you can better demonstrate your knowledge and fulfil marking criteria. I can also help you improve the clarity and flow of your writing. My usual turnaround for proofreading is 72 hours, but you can request an 'express' turnaround (< 24 hours) for $45/1000 words.

I am happy to chat via email or over the phone/Skype/Zoom to further discuss your needs and what I can offer to see if we are a good fit for one another.

All the best with your studies and I look forward to working with you :)





Dawson has helped me so much for all of my psychology subjects (both 2nd and 3rd year subjects). He is professional, knowledgeable, helpful, understanding, and I would recommend him for any psychology subject.
Dawson has helped me understand where I ‘went wrong’ in my assignments/lab reports, and very clearly explains how to improve my writing.
He is exceptional at editing my assignments, teaching me how to be more succinct in my writing, concise, ‘to the point’, and helps me achieve consistently high results.
Again, I highly recommend Dawson to help you improve your psychology marks (through improved understanding of concepts, and essay writing skills).

Dawson is an exceptional tutor. He blends his personal manner and academic ability in such a way that is very approachable (I never feel stupid asking questions) and knowledgeable (he is very informed about all things psych). I attribute results I'm happy with to his consistent help throughout the semester. I wouldn't approach any subject now without him. He is an excellent dimension to integrate in your approach to study.

What can I say about Dawson? Other than how good he is a tutor? Terrific person? Gentle Voice?!? All the above really. But in all seriousness his powers of explanation will certainly exceed your level of misunderstanding. Give him a go, no regrets.

As an international student, English is not my strength, psychology essay writing in particular. There are some terminology or rhetoric that I just don’t get it. Dawson helps you compensate this issue. I know my marks are higher after proofreading and this satisfy my needs.

If you have ever had the privilege of receiving help from Dawson, you'd know he's the best at his job. Whether it's proof reading, or just a general chat to see whether or not you're on the right, Dawson is always patient and non judgemental of any questions you may have. With his boundless experience, he knows what the assessors are looking for, and is able to help you implement this into your own work and address the criteria. I owe absolutely everything to him for the excellent marks I've received through his help and cannot recommend him enough.

Dawson has proofread a number of assignments for me and he has been really reliable. He is able to work to short deadlines which is really great!

Dawson helped me with a statistics assignment that I was struggling with, and due to his tutoring the calibre of my assignment, and strength with the subject overall, improved exponentially. Great guy, he is malleable to whatever your particular tutoring needs may be, and is also very patient. Would highly recommend.

Dawson is an incredibly helpful tutor. He has proofread a number of my assignments, each time providing thorough feedback, constructive criticism and helpful suggestions. He is also organised, with quick responses and a very friendly attitude. Highly recommended!

Dawson provided me with editing on a number of assessment pieces. He's got an ability to ready your work closely, understand what you are trying to get at, and help you put that in the best way possible. He has an attention to detail which makes his editing (and his own work) exceptional.

I would take the time to work with Dawson. Sit down and identify where you think you need to improve - he is responsive to your needs, and will help you meet your goals.

He's a great tutor and editor. If he has time for your, take it!
