I cannot thank Edward enough! through a number of sessions, Edward went through my personal statement and guided me to re-write it completely. Everything has changed: structure, ideas, main points were stressed, superfluous was cut to give space to more important aspects. Being a non-native speaker, it was challenging for me not only to writing with all even the tiniest peculiarities of English language, knowing words which would fit better than others and re-structuring it. Edward not only brushed my PS from all grammatical and other mistakes but made it much more coherent, comprehensive and eloquent. He also helped me to restructure my resume. As a result, I easily got in into UCL, LSE and received the unconditional offer from the University of Oxford. An unbelievable achievement which was only possible because of Edward's guidance and meticulousness. I wish to highly recommend Edward as a great mentor for any academic help you may need.

Questions Edward has answered

Using examples, explain the reasons why rural-urban migration occurs.

Rural-urban migration - the movement of indivdiuals from rural to urban areas - is the product of a plethora of push and pull factors, as exhibited by Lee's push-pull theory. Migration from rural to urban Brazil, for example, occurs as a result of a variety of push factors, including low-paid menial labour (often agricultural) that has become increasingly mechanized, as well as poor quality standards of living for rural workers, such as land, lack of services (schools, hospitals, electricity, water supply) as well as poor quality housing. Pull factors in urban Brazil include the prospect of industrial labour (such as in factories), greater governmental provision of schools and health services, as well as potential for workers to access the urban formal economy (in comparison to informal labour in rural areas). Better entertainment, a wider supply of housing, are also  pull factors, which, for many rural-urban migrants, becomes an important factor in the migration process, such that future generations (and children) can benefit. Nevertheless, it must be recognized that, in reality, the process of rural-urban migration is often much more complicated and uneasy for migrants: the pull factors attracting migrants to urban Brazil are often unrealized, and many migrants often reside in informal settlements (such as favelas in Rio) and work in low-paid, often dangerous, informal labour.
