We love what we do. Creating strong relationships with our Clients, Candidates & 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 & Students as well as our Case Study from our work at QMU.
2I 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.
"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.

Tracey Mercer, Study Skills Tutor & Mental Health Mentor, Edinburgh & Fife 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.”

“I would like to add how impressed I am with the efficiency and professionalism shown by Theorise. My request for support was responded to very swiftly and the communication throughout the whole process has been exemplary. Feedback from the student has also been extremely positive in relation to the support provided.” Inverness College UHI D&I Adviser
“We have worked with Theorise for a number of years now, 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 upmost 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.”
Perth College UHI D&I Adviser
“I've been really impressed by the prompt initial response from Theorise and the pairing with my mentor, who has shown great understanding and given useful support and resources to help me to work out way to deal with challenges.”
Perth College UHI Post-Graduate student
“I would just like to add that my support worker has been amazing in light of such difficult circumstances, she has managed to provide an excellent service even we are doing remote working.”
Napier University 2nd year student
“My Theorise tutor went above and beyond her duties to help with me with all my studies in this academic year, in such uncertain times she constantly stayed in touch. She shared her valuable knowledge with me and had an extremely positive impact on my attitude towards my studies. I look forward to working with her in the coming semester.”
Queen Margaret University 3rd year student
“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.”
Queen Margaret University 4th year 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."

“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."

We've been privileged to work with a number of Colleges & 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, that explains the challenges faced and the solutions we had to these problems.
