Four testimonials


"I highly recommend Soerin as your thesis coach based on my positive experience with him over the past months. Soerin guided me through the different research phases, from the literature review until the conclusion and recommendations. By asking probing questions instead of immediately giving the answers to my questions, Soerin not only contributed to a thesis that I’m proud of, but also made me a better researcher. The recommendations that Soerin gave during his review of my thesis drafts were helpful and often formed the basis of new insights. When I hit a block while working on a factor analysis, Soerin helped me via a Skype session during which he looked at my SPSS and SmartPLS output live. Because of his enthusiasm, positive attitude and “can do” mentality, my interactions with Soerin were always pleasant and motivating.


Soerin, many thanks for your support!"

"I would definitely recommend Soerin as thesis advisor. Not only does Soerin help with the students plan for research, he also helps to improve the plan by making recommendations for advanced research (and additional analyses). Soerin is a very fine coach and works very structured, which triggers the students to be passioned. Soerin is easily accessible and responsive to questions and / or ambiguities. Soerin is certainly willing to help the students when problems occur. Soerin has a lot of knowledge, not only in the content but also in the structure and design of the study. He may also communicate this knowledge in a proper way, so that things are understandable for others. Soerin reviewed the thesis very detailed, by making comments in Word. The review notes will be clear and transparent. Soerin is very keen on the support of your written pieces with appropriate citations. He also helps to make your writing style 'journal proof'. He gives examples (references to pieces from other papers) and make suggestions to improve your writing style. Soerin motivates others to “get the best out of yourself”. Upon reviewing my thesis also noticed me that Soerin always reviewed with the why question. With this, he triggers another to think even more about the background of the texts are written. I’am very positive about the contact times I had with Soerin, he shares his information with great passion, he is patient and takes his time to help you with questions or ambiguities. I don’t have any improvement points for Soerin as thesis advisor. Again, I would recommend Soerin to anyone!"

"My masterthesis (in Health Law) was recently reviewed by Soerin. While this thesis was outside his field, he provided me valuable feedback on the most crucial parts of my thesis, which were the main relevance between the research question and subquestions, applied thesis methodology and theoretical structure in order to achieve consistency between title, problem, purpose and research questions. I’ve also asked him to review my Final Conclusion & Recommendations. While his profession is in accountancy, his tips and key notes were very helpful and motivated me to finetune my thesis in some certain aspects such as re-production of my research findings and used theoretical literature. I think it is a real added value to let your thesis review by a professional teacher, who reviews dozens of master thesis a week. At the end I would really recommend anyone to let it reviewed by Soerin, which will motivate you to take the extra mile to finish your thesis on time"

April 3rd, 2017

"I hereby would like to recommend Soerin as thesis supervisor / mentor in writing.

Not for your ego but as a huge benefit for future students.

The reason why I would recommend him is because I believe he sees himself failing when a student fails. The harmony in the interest of both him and the students makes the delivered service as a ‘to be the standard of excellence’ one.


When discussing actualities or supporting literature Soerin is spot on! He knows what you are talking about which gives the thesis writer a lot of comfort every check.

The support by reviewing the thesis on a detailed way is very valuable. His review is of a high quality which is helpful to improve a structured writing style.


The interaction between Soerin and the students is good. He is a go-to-person (approachable). Besides that, he is very flexible in reviewing a thesis or answering question by e-mail or a text message.


The knowledge he has about collecting data and analysing the data is of an excessive high level. Multiple programs to analyse but also multiple ways to analyse. To connect the dots for a student in times they need it the most is a comfortable action. For example: In my experience I was stuck in an analysis and he did not tell me the answer, but showed me a door which made me think of how to deal with a hurdle.


Improvement can be accomplished on the areas of stopping a student when a student is only focussed on deadlines and less on quality of previous handed in parts of the thesis. Second to It, an added value can be created by paying attention on used terminology and translations from English literature.


I want to thank Soerin by writing this letter. I’m grateful for what he has done. He has partly contributed for me to be able to use the master-title with proud."

Effective Academic Writing: Write Papers that Get Results

Learn to write an academic paper that is clear, effective, that makes you look good, and that is well-received. 

      Academic writing is not about grammar. It's not about fancy words. It's not about memorizing information or showing off new fonts. 

      It's about effectively communicating a complex idea, and backing that idea up with facts and compelling arguments. 

      "But I have good ideas!", you protest. "But I still don't get good grades!!" 

      That's because you haven't learned how to package and sell your ideas to your reader. I was a straight A student before becoming a professional editor. I have spent the past 10 years mastering the art of academic writing. I know how to get good grades, I know what you need to do to get them too.  And in this course, I show you. 

      "I am a graduate student," you sigh. "I don't need some class talking to me about grammar. I need someone who knows that I have ideas that need to get through." 

      I understand about ideas needing to get through. I am a published researcher, and professional scientific editor. I have edited 100s of manuscripts at every level in the fields of psychology, social science, linguistics, engineering, education... I know what this kind of writing is about. And I know how to make it "sell". 

      Academic writing is a strict, rules-based form of communication. In this course, I take you behind the scenes and into the mind of your professor (or TA) or referee board. I give you the tips and tricks that I have gained through my years of experience and that work. 

      I have jam-packed the information you need into a series of lectures, course notes, and quizzes. This course is compact: I give you the information you need to excel, no time-wasters. 

      The lectures, course notes, and quizzes are complimentary and contain all the information you need to take your academic writing to the next level.

           Students who will benefit most: 

      1) college students/undergraduates who need to boost grades, 

      2) grad students who need to take their writing to the next level (i.e., finish dissertation and get published!) 

                 This course is NOT for:

            1) students who have written multiple theses (if you already know how to package and structure your ideas, but you are still struggling, then your problem might lie elsewhere)

            2) students in areas of study which are very dissimilar to the social sciences; each field has its own writing conventions!

      3) also: this course is NOT a grammar course. If you are looking for a course to take you through the basics of English grammar and style, I don't do that here. If you are looking for a course to help you kick some academic butt, enroll right now. 

      There is a 30-day money back guarantee, so if you are not 100% satisfied, Udemy will give you a full refund, no questions asked. 

      I love this topic, and I am excited to help you. You have access to me for your questions or specific issues. If you have been looking for a writing course that helps you get your message across, this is the writing course for you. Enroll now! 

Academic Essay Writing: The Crash Course

Learn how to think critically, write analytically and produce valuable essays.

Created by Nina Modak - Private Tutor specialising in English, History & RE


Students: 2205, Price: $89.99

Students: 2205, Price:  Paid

Do any of these scenarios apply to you?

  • You’ve assigned an essay but have no idea how to start approaching the question.

  • Got all the information for your essay but not sure how to plan your essay.

  • Stuck with how to research and find good sources online.

  • You’re ok with the essay writing but your grade is stuck at a C/B and don’t know why you can’t push it up, even though you’re trying.

  • You don’t know who to ask for help.

If any of these apply to you, you are in the right place. Over my years of teaching I have come across a common problem: students are not taught the skills or process to write an analytical essay. What’s worse, most schools do not teach effective essay writing, they do not teach you how to think critically (nor do they encourage it), and they don’t teach students the process of writing in a structured and understandable way. It’s a problem.

After the success of the Modak Tutoring Covid-19 Online School, I decided to create an on-demand version that you can follow along from anywhere and anytime.

This crash course will give you the foundations and structure to write an analytical essay that puts your argument across in a succinct and coherent manner (all things your teacher is looking for, even if they didn’t explain it that way). This method will challenge you to read and think critically so that you can approach any assignment, no matter how complicated, with confidence and assurance that you know the process to find the answer.

In this course you will learn how to write an essay from start to finish including:

  • Understanding the essay question,

  • Researching,

  • Note taking,

  • Planning,

  • Writing and

  • Editing your essay.

I show you what to look for in each step of the process and how you can take your writing to the next level. The easy to follow video lessons will take you through the ‘theory’ and then show you how to put it into practice with your own essay.

This method has been tried and tested for more than 10 years in my own academic work and taught to my students. Every one of my students who has put in the work have jumped up by at least 2 grades in 6 months using the method laid out in this course. You will be challenged, but the benefit of learning to think have long lasting rewards.


This course is not a quick fix for students who are looking for someone to tell them the answer and don’t want to put the work in.

However, if you are ready and willing to put in the work this course will give you the tools you need to improve your critical thinking, improve your writing so that you can write more analytical and valuable essays. The result of this will be a better quality of your writing and subsequently your grade should improve too.

If this sounds like what you are looking for, sign up today and start becoming a better writer now.

Mastering IELTS Writing: Task 1 Academic (Band 9 Answers)

Eighteen model answer walkthroughs for IELTS Writing Task 1 Academic for the best in IELTS Academic Writing preparation.

Are you intimidated by the graphs, charts, processes and maps that appear in IELTS Writing Task 1?

Do you struggle to identify main trends, to work out which information is most relevant, and to record data with precision?

Are you unsure how to structure your response? Do you feel you lack the words to describe data? Do you panic at the thought of comparative grammar and complex sentences?

I designed this course for anyone who answers 'yes' to any of these questions.

After seeing the popularity of my Mastering IELTS Writing: Task 2 (Band 9 Model Answers) course, which has been enrolled upon by over 8,000 students and has an average rating of 4.6/5, I decided to make a similar course for IELTS Writing Task 1 for the Academic module.

Throughout the course of each video, we will discover how to effectively plan our response for each type of Task 1 question, how to produce a quick and accurate introduction, how to transition seamlessly between sentences and paragraphs, how to identify main trends and select information which counts as 'key features', how to use vocabulary which describes data precisely and effectively, and how to include a wealth of grammatical complexity without sacrificing clarity.

This course has been divided into six sections, with each section dedicated to a different type of task: graphs with a trend; comparative graphs; tasks with more than one graph; tasks with a future element; processes; and maps. Within each of these sections are three responses, and each of these section's responses looks at a different topic. That makes a total of eighteen responses!

Designing the course in this way allows you to see the different language and the different approaches we use for each of the task types, and it also provides you with a great range of vocabulary and ideas according to different types of data presentation.

There are vocabulary exercises following each of the letter lectures which aim to consolidate the vocabulary you have learnt in that video. These will also provide you with a copy of each response in document form.

To make the most out of this Model Answers course, it is strongly recommended that you go through the original 'Mastering IELTS Writing: Task 1 (Academic)' course before beginning as all of the responses here rely on the strategies, vocabulary, grammar and general guidance taught in that course. This course has an average rating of 4.7/5 from over 8,500 students and over 2,000 reviews, so it's definitely worth checking out! 

However, you can still benefit a lot from these model answers if you take the two courses at the same time.

And if you have any questions as you work your way through the lectures, don't hesitate to contact me via Udemy's Q&A feature.

See you inside the course!

In this course I will present a range of principles and practices to help you write better. The course content is applicable across all fields, faculties and types of writing projects.

This will help your reader and ensure your writing flows.

  • “These workshops should be compulsory”
