Candidate Testimonials

"Working with Theorise Ltd in a Note-Taker role has been the perfect job for me over the last year. It has allowed me to utilise my skills and knowledge in an extremely rewarding way whilst also allowing me to develop transferable skills and gain new experiences within the education sector.  

The company are an absolute dream to work for. They are reliable, accommodating, excellent at communicating and also make you feel like a valued member of their team by sharing positive feedback and being completely flexible with your other commitments.  

I am absolutely thrilled to be working with them again next year."

Claire Docherty, Note Taker, Edinburgh area.

"I have worked with Theorise, employed as an external tutor working primarily with dyslexic, dyspraxic and autistic undergraduate and postgraduate students.

In my time with Theorise, I have been impressed by a number of features of the agency:

1.     Communications are excellent – timely, clearly expressed and yet friendly. I have never been kept waiting for a reply to my emails and I always know that if they do not know the answer to a question, Theorise will make appropriate enquiries straight away. They are totally approachable and make it clear that all issues are taken seriously.

2.     Theorise conveys a great sense of balance of loyalties, indicating that they value all stakeholders in the agency – in my case, students, external tutors, university disability staff and funding agencies.

3.     Theorise staff are always efficient and capable. Despite the potential for mistakes in processing paperwork, timesheets etc., I have yet to experience problems or inaccuracies."

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.

Client Testimonials

"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.”

Student Testimonials

"Working with a Theorise tutor has greatly improved my self-esteem, confidence and ability to manage my anxieties. With my Theorise tutor's support I feel better able to express my ideas and plan my work. I have noticed an immediate improvement in my academic work and have achieved distinction marks I previously thought were out of reach. "

Queen Margaret University MSc Student

"Theorise were amazing, they set me up with a tutor very quickly and this was key for my success. My tutor helped me with all aspects of my dissertation, ensuring I was critical and meeting the marking criteria. She seemed genuinely interested in what I was writing about and was happy to do extra work so that i was kept on track. Thank you to Theorise and my tutor!"

Queen Margaret University 4th year UG Student


"My Theorise tutor has been an incredible support this year. She was truly amazing and went so far out her way to help with whatever problem or meltdown your having over something small or huge. She has helped me to read more and we've risen my grades and got my first ever A and she was just as thrilled as I was. She is truly amazing and a credit to your team. I hope that I will be able to get her again next year as we have built such a strong relationship over the past 2 years and she gets how my dyslexia works and how best she can support me."

Perth College UHI 3rd year BA (Hons) Student

“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.” 

Perth College UHI PG Student


"I initially wrote a piece as an assignment about opportunities and barriers to effective and accurate communications with transgender patients accessing the radiology service. I realised while researching that there was minimal guidance on the subject despite this patient population experiencing severe disparities in healthcare provision. 

My study skills sessions were fundamental in helping me to develop my ideas and throughout the writing process. In particular, these sessions helped me to gain confidence in my writing and myself.


With Tracey's (Theorise tutor) encouragement and support I decided to enquire about publication. I am pleased to say that the article was accepted and published in the November 2019 issue of  Imaging and Therapy Practice. A journal primarily focused on current issues and challenges within radiography."
