Oliver - Santiago- History - Postgraduate
14th November 2023
Every class with Oliver has been an enormous pleasure. He is an incredibly dedicated professional who constantly pushes for the student's success, providing recommendations that enhance the quality and clarity of essays. I could not have been luckier in choosing Oliver Daddow. I worked with Oliver for 6 months, meeting weekly to prepare for my MPhil applications. We shared 40 classes, totaling more than 34 hours. I can sincerely say that my experience has been unparalleled. I could never have achieved as much as I did without Oliver's help. The quality of my essays and personal statements improved exponentially after our multiple sessions. Oliver possesses four key skills that make him an exceptional tutor. First, he has an immense sense of clarity in writing. As a Spanish speaker, I know I face challenges in effectively transmitting messages in written English. Oliver was adept at identifying my mistakes and refining my writing to convey the intended message more sharply, directly, and simply. Secondly, Oliver has an outstanding sense of framing. Even though I knew much of what I wanted to convey in my personal statements, Oliver always found the best ways to present the information for maximum impact and order. He knows how to engage the reader’s interest. Thirdly, as a long-time admissions officer, Oliver understands what UK universities are looking for. He comprehends the process and offers tips and tricks that I believe no other tutor can provide. Last but not least, Oliver is a great person. Graduate application processes are highly stressful, especially for an international student like myself, who has had minimal contact with the British educational system. I have had many instances where I needed a calming response from someone more knowledgeable, and that person was always Oliver. He was even kind enough to answer during weekends and accommodate my hectic work schedule. Without a doubt, Oliver is the best tutor to choose. He combines high skill, insider knowledge, and empathy.
