We love what we do. Creating strong relationships with our clients, candidates, and students is what we strive to achieve and specialise in. Don't just take our word for it though. Below are our testimonials from our candidates, clients and students as well as our Case Study from our work at QMU.
"Having worked as a Study Skills Tutor for two semesters and across three campuses, I have found Theorise to be an excellent employer. The calibre of the NMPH staff is outstanding and the integrity and professionalism of the office staff makes any challenge surmountable. I have tutored independently at other universities but Theorise provides the most genuine care for their employees, conscientious safeguarding of their students and exceptionally high standards of provision. Theorise provides support for its staff, strong leadership during lockdown and the continuous professional development opportunities which are indicative of a company which values its people: both employees and clients. I feel privileged to work as part of such a vibrant team."
Cat Scott, Study Skills Tutor, Central Scotland & Perth area.
"I have worked with different agencies and directly with clients over the years, and working with you at Theorise is definitely the best experience I have had – from the quality and robustness of the agency’s professional and safeguarding standards, to the agency’s excellent communication, streamlined processes, speedy payment, and your swift responsiveness to any query or issue. I also very much enjoy working with you Dany (Theorise Director) and wanted to thank you for being a friendly and approachable soul, as learning support is a very human role at the end of the day. Theorise is not an ordinary agency – we are all making a difference in our own way. Thank you also for supporting me and trusting me to do a good job. I feel very lucky to do this work, which I enjoy very much.”
Kathryn Pierce, Study Skills Tutor, Edinburgh area.
"I have worked as a Study Skills tutor with Theorise for a few years now and I have nothing but praise for the organisation. Dany (Theorise Director) has a total commitment to supporting workers and students alike and is always meticulous as well as pragmatic. He consults us about all referrals and on the rare occasions when slight problems arise, his response is immediate, appropriate, and efficient. Theorise's administration is similarly perfect. Timesheets/payslips are handled in a completely accurate and timely manner. As much as I enjoyed lecturing before I retired, this is without doubt the best job I have ever had and that is entirely thanks to the work of Theorise."
Alison Galloway, Study Skills Tutor, Edinburgh area.
“I have worked with Theorise over the last academic year as a Study Skills Tutor, and have found the Theorise family to be approachable, supportive, and professional throughout. They are extremely accurate and timely regarding payment, the work is interesting, and their communication is excellent – there has never been a time when they haven’t responded promptly to a query. I look forward to continuing our working relationship into the foreseeable future.”
Alison Spencer, Study Skills Tutor, Glasgow area.
"I just thought I would get in touch to give some feedback regarding one of your Theorise support staff. They have honestly been such a welcome asset. Her and her student are very well matched and we have seen a huge improvement in not only class but general wellbeing.
We are really hoping the student will progress onto the next year with Theorise supporting him.”

“We have worked with Theorise for a number of years now, and they continue to provide our students with an excellent standard of support. The team at Theorise are responsive to student needs and concerns and will do their utmost to ensure that each student is supported to their individualised needs. Equally, the team will endeavour to pair up students with an appropriate support worker and if and when a relationship between support worker and student requires a change (which is not the norm), Theorise are more than willing to facilitate that change.”

“I have been very impressed with the service that Theorise has offered in terms of my own personal contact and the experience of the students. I look forward to working with you again in the next academic year 2021/22. Thank you.”

"I am incredibly grateful that I have had the opportunity to work with Michael (Theorise tutor) during my time at university. When I first came to QMU I was hesitant about whether this would be the right place for me. Michael made a real effort in getting to know me and created a positive learning environment where I felt seen and listened to. I firmly believe that if I had not met Michael, I may not have stayed at university, let alone be achieving good grades and going on to pursue further education at MFA level. I have been inspired by the depth of Michael's knowledge and insight during our sessions and I am indebted to him for the way that he has helped me both academically and creatively. Michael’s kindness and support in his work with me have very much changed my university experience for the better. I hope that more students are given the chance to work with the staff from Theorise, as my experience of having Michael as my study skills tutor has been one of the most enjoyable and rewarding highlights of university."

“Brian (Theorise Mentor) really helped me, and it would be amazing to keep working on my issues with him next year. He’s very understanding, he knew what I was going through because he experienced similar things, and I think it really helped me since it was quite easy to explain how I was feeling. Even though I had to stop our sessions because of personal issues, I can’t wait to be able to chat with him again. I also want to thank this whole service, as someone coming from another country where we don’t have this kind of support, it is truly amazing that you’re all ready to help us."

“I have had a fantastic experience being supported by Senga (Theorise tutor). It has been a very positive learning experience, which has been life changing. It was also amazing being supported by a tutor with the ethos of starting from where I was at, which was both empowering and amazing for my development. I also appreciated the safe and comfortable education environment my support tutor created for me. This was especially beneficial for me when looking at my essay feedback and reviewing, planning, and structuring of assignments. I also greatly appreciated having someone there to off load to and who would understand my challenges. I can’t speak highly enough of Senga’s support for me, and she is a credit to your organisation.”

“I’ve never been so supported in every aspect of my emotional and academic needs; my support worker is always happy to help me and always puts me first. She is a very good support worker and I reckon there should be more people like her to help people like me!”
Edinburgh College SCQF student
“To be completely honest, I wish I met Maura (Theorise tutor), when I was in primary school. Having a support tutor as awesome as Maura is not just about guidance, help, and advice; it is also like somebody who believes in you and understands how frustrating and muddled up information can get in your head. She relaxes me and gives me the time to work it out, it's like a process I go through which can be real frustrating for people to help, as I’m lost in my head similar to being oversaturated with information and brain going crazy processing it. She understands completely. This process or cycle I go through is where my ideas come from, she helps me calculate it out for myself. My first idea is to create an AI version of her I can take with me when leaving university.”

“I would like to say that working with Mali has been a really positive and enjoyable experience for me. She always made time for me whenever I needed her guidance and our meetings were always really productive, I always left them extremely motivated and ready to power on with whatever piece of work I was doing. I feel very lucky to have had Mali as my support tutor throughout my university experience.”

“Now my support has finished I wanted to email you to thank you and to let you know how useful I’ve found your company’s mentor provision over the last few months. The last four months have seen me turn a corner and instead of giving up on my studies, the mentor you allocated to me, has guided me and encouraged me to continue and achieve really good grades. I was seven assignments behind and now I’m all caught up and focusing on my dissertation! I have even managed to achieve a distinction and an outstanding distinction which I never thought I would manage as I was floundering so much with my health and concentration. Initially, when I was told that I would get help I was concerned that I would be designated a mentor who didn’t appreciate masters level study. This has not been the case and I have been so relieved and delighted by the study engagement I have received. I particularly found that touching base each week and looking at different techniques for study, very useful especially when used alongside the debates that my mentor and I have had on my chosen topics. It has helped me to set a pace for my study and to really think about what I write and how I wrote it. I am very grateful that I have been taught the tools to be able to take hold of my studies and future through this help and my disability no longer seems such a barrier to success.”

We've been privileged to work with a number of colleges and universities. One of our first involvements in student support came at Queen Margaret University in the provision of note taking support. Have a look at our PDF, which explains the challenges faced and the solutions we had to these problems.
