Tutor: Social Sciences, Dutch, Essay Writing, Qual Methods
I am Dyi (‘Gee’). I have supported hundreds of students at BA, MA and PhD level with their academic needs (see references) in the fields of Sociology, Criminology, Political Science, Counselling and Psychotherapy, Management, Public Health, Social Work, Speech Therapy, Nursing and Physiotherapy etc. I work as a freelancer and have taught Sociology and Qualitative Research Methods at various universities. I also provide Dutch instruction and conversation classes for a couple of years now. In addition, I have two decades of experience as a mentor, trainer and I am a certified and experienced group facilitator.
I offer a relatively low fee to keep my services accessible to students who cannot afford high rates.
I am a PhD candidate in Sociology at a Russell Group University and before studied internationally in the areas of Social Sciences, International Relations, Spanish and Portuguese, and I am natively fluent in Dutch (I am from Amsterdam). I specialise in gender, race, disability (incl mental health), agency-structure debate, cognition and emotions, intersectionality, inequalities, power (relations), and social theory as well as epistemology and various qualitative research methods.
I offer the following private tuition:
(1a) I provide academic tuition: I support students in Social and Health Sciences with, for instance, essay writing, qualitative data analysis, research design and study skills. This also includes mentoring.
(1b) I provide academic review services: I will review essays and dissertation by providing detailed, in-depth comments. For more information, see the T&C at the bottom.
(2a) I provide Dutch tuition over Skype (Zoom or Vsee).
(2b) I provide Dutch conversation classes over Skype (Zoom or Vsee). or, in case you live in the UK, over telephone.
Please contact me with your request so we can see how and when we can work together. Below you find some more information in the T&C.
I look forward to working with you!

Dieuwertje was very effective and methodical in helping me organise my thoughts and academic work. She has an ability to cut through chaos by asking precise and thought-provoking questions that both challenged me and also helped me arrive at my own conclusions. She is very well informed and extremely observant and articulate. She works in a very organised, consistent and reliable way and always engages with warmth, respect and encouragement.
Having made last minute changes to my subject, Dieuwertje guidance made it possible for me to organise my thoughts and successfully complete my MA dissertation within a very limited timeframe.

Dieuwertje was absolutely first class. Her assistance was perfect - very knowledgeable. Her input was excellent and really gave me the perfect guidelines and direction. It was a pleasure and education to work with Dieuwertje.
A successful outcome and enhanced knowledge and understanding.

I highly recommend Dyi as a tutor. She reviewed my essay for my BSc degree and provided me with very clear and concise feedback. She is very efficient, welcoming and flexible in her approach, which I am grateful for. I would definitely use Dyi again for any academic help I may need in the future. (I also agree with the review below, she really is great!)
I was initially sceptical as the prices were quite cheap and I had never done online tutoring before. However, Dyi has been instrumental in helping me achieve a high 2.1 (almost a 1st) in my first assignment. Dyi provides very good advice on essay structures and research methods and doesn't tell you what to do, but helps unpick the ideas from your mind. I highly recommend her and feel confident that I will continue to do well with her support.
