Tutoring…With a Twist is a local tutoring agency that offers university-level tutors for essay writing and editing. It is our pleasure to work with students at Vancouver Island University, the University of Victoria, and distance education programs, as well as students studying specialized courses via our local private, community and technical college programs.
We have been serving the Vancouver Island community for more than 10 years and have built a reputation for our unique, student-focused approach to tutoring. We get to know each student on an individual basis and then develop a personalized tutoring plan that will improve skills within the classroom and beyond.
Through professional editing, we can help brainstorm, clarify ideas, ask thought-provoking questions to help flush out ideas, cite sources in MLA or APA style, and proofread for grammar and spelling.

Essay Writing & Editing Testimonials
“Mistakes were explained to me in a way that I could understand and then, could improve upon. I don’t think of mistakes in a negative way anymore because I realized, with my Twisted Tutor’s help, that I could learn more from working through the mistake then I could had I gave up. I loved the knowledge that she brought to the sessions, as well as how flexible she was in her explanations.”
-CU, Graduate Student, Thesis Writing Process
“This was one of the teachers whom I can truly say I will never forget because of her constant brightness, and positive attitude towards students. Her faith in us and charisma was what really enticed students to come to class every day because we were in a pleasant environment and were being educated in a way where learning was fun. A teacher who cares for their students’ future and actively strives to bring out the best potential in them would be just a minute example of the type of teacher Amber Scotchburn was to me. I always felt excited to come to class, knowing that the skills I would learn would prove to be beneficial to me in the future, and help aid me in further research towards my career goals and endeavors.”
