“Natalie has helped and supported me throughout my numerous applications processes for a Master in Finance program. The whole applications processes were long and tedious – personal statements, motivation letters, reference letters, GMAT, scholarship applications, etc. had to be written, reviewed, corrected, and reviewed again. I went through this process five times, as I was planning to apply to five different universities including LSE, Imperial College of London, and London Business School in the UK – and IE Business School and ESADE Business School in Spain.
Not only was Natalie extremely swift, meticulous, and complete in her comments and her advice – but I cannot insist enough on how much her guidance through every step of the process has been an incredible and indispensable help for me both as an educational and a psychological support.
I ended up applying to only three out of the five universities, and I got accepted to all three of them – and was awarded the Excellence scholarship worth €6,600 at ESADE Business School and the IE Fellowship scholarship worth €8,000 at IE Business school (where I have decided to study).
Natalie’s reviews, comments, and advice undeniably contributed to these positive responses by allowing me to write strong and convincing statements and essays. I would strongly recommend her to anyone considering applying for a Master or an MBA.”
“I approached Natalie for some tutoring in relation to my Level 3 Social Psychology degree.
I was having particular difficulties with my proposed qualitative research project. I have to admit I was really struggling and was contemplating pulling out of my studies. Thankfully, I searched for a tutor first and found Natalie through the suggestion of a friend.
After supplying Natalie with an overview of the objectives, she demonstrated a clear understanding and picked up on what I was aiming for and having difficulties with. Our tutorials took place over face time as I live abroad, however, this was not an issue Natalie made me feel at ease and comfortable.
Natalie consistently provided fantastic clarity, explaining areas I didn’t understand clearly. For example, literature searches proved difficult for me and Natalie took the time to walk me through the procedure, assisting me in finding some fabulous papers before giving me the next step to take. She was extremely patient and clear in explaining how to approach my area of study, she quite obviously had a vast knowledge regarding psychology and teaching.
As a mature student who had lost their confidence, I felt Natalie’s empathy and support really encouraging – she really gave me the push I needed! I am genuinely thrilled to bits with her undivided attention and dedication in helping me to both understand my topic thoroughly and attain a mark to be proud of.
As a tutor, I feel Natalie goes above and beyond to help her students succeed and I cannot recommend her highly enough. I will most definitely be calling on her help and indisputable expertise in the near future. “

“Natalie provided me with guidance for writing my dissertation for my Geography degree at the University of Birmingham. Throughout our sessions, she provided me with a structure and an outline for my dissertation, constructive criticisms on where I was going wrong and the help that I needed to (hopefully) get a good grade. She also provided me with additional reading on research methods such as how to use a case study which was extremely helpful when writing my methodology section and gave me a further insight into the subject area. Overall, she was a huge help throughout my dissertation process and invested time and energy into me so I got the maximum help possible during our sessions.”
Charlotte, final year student of University of Birmingham
“During my degree at the University of Leeds (Politics) I felt that my dissertation work needed checking by someone with in depth knowledge about how to structure and compose extended pieces of writing. The expertise that Natalie provided vastly improved the quality of my work as well as my understanding of what skills are needed to improve further work. Prior to writing my dissertation Natalie helped me to consolidate my thoughts and create a focused topic area, title and plan that I could work with. Sitting with Natalie and thoroughly editing parts of my dissertation once I had written it showed me where I was making mistakes grammatically and structurally as well as where there was need for greater depth or critical analysis. I believe my work benefitted greatly from this as I was able to make adjustments after our lesson whilst our discussions were still in mind.
Natalie was also generous in lending relevant books or articles that could improve my work and used academic work of her own to help exemplify certain writing skills. In applying for my MA (at Fordham University, New York) Natalie also guided me in writing an excellent personal statement. Natalie’s extensive knowledge of how to produce high quality pieces of writing on any topic enabled me to achieve a first in my dissertation and I do not believe I would have been able to do so without her help.”
Harriet, recent graduate of University of Leeds
“Without Natalie’s support and help getting into university, I wouldn’t be where I am today – currently a student at the University of Birmingham.”
Cara, first year student, University of Birmingham
“Hi Natalie. Thank you so much for all your help with my personal statement. So far I have offers from my first two uni choices (Nottingham and Birmingham), so am very happy.“
Serena, Year 13 student
“I found the lessons with Natalie extremely helpful. It allowed me to prepare thoroughly for my interviews both by increasing my confidence and highlighting to me the areas of my subject that I found interesting.“
Georgina, first year student, University of Cambridge
“Natalie tutored me in psychology and helped me with my university process and it’s safe to say I couldn’t have done it without her!“
David, first year student, University of Nottingham
“Natalie Lancer’s university advice was spot on. Before having contacted her, I was lost. Nobody had given me any satisfying advice, and I ended up being inundated with little bits and pieces of information that I didn’t know what to do with. I was beginning to doubt my academic capabilities. After having followed Natalie’s brilliant advice, I got accepted into top universities and will be studying a subject that fascinates me.“
Christophe, prospective media student, gap year
“The help I got from you was invaluable – your ideas were of a very high standard. You made constructive suggestions such as how to shorten long paragraphs without spoiling the sense and how to include information that an admissions tutor would have in mind. Your proof reading was very detailed. Thanks so much.”
Alex, second year student, UCL
“Natalie taught me Psychology AS Level in 3 months and got me an A. I got 88% in both AS Psychology units and have so much confidence in Natalie that I started studying Sociology A level with her too. She is focused and passionate and knows the specification well – so time is spent efficiently to get the best grades. Natalie is helpful and motivating”.
Tanya, A-level student
“Natalie, thank you so much for your career advice – your knowledge of the various training providers and employment opportunities beyond was invaluable and you tailored your advice so precisely to my own particular situation. It really helped to focus my thinking and to make the right decision”.
