About me

WHO AM I?

I have specialist knowledge, education and experience in linguistics, business, marketing and international development, with a background in the private sector, higher education and consultancy projects financed by the World Bank, UNDP and other international agencies. During my career, I have worked in around forty countries, utilising my native English and of my language skills, principally, German, French and Russian.

My years as a university lecturer in business and marketing also required the teaching of academic writing skills and critical thinking. My Master's degree in the linguistics and pedagogy of second language acquisition (SLA) meant I was able to do this knowledgeably and competently.

HOW CAN I HELP YOU?

I can work with you in a number of ways in order to improve your written academic English.

- Proofreading: to identify and correct your typographical mistakes, spelling, grammar, referencing & punctuation.

- Editing: to improve the quality of your academic English, by suggesting changes to your vocabulary, sentences and paragraphs.

- Paraphrasing: to extend editing into the whole structure of your assignment, so that it flows logically and smoothly.

- For PowerPoint presentations: to suggest how to improve the impact and rhetoric of your presentation and to its visual impact

WHICH ASSIGNMENTS CAN I HELP YOU WITH?

I work mainly at under- and post-graduate levels, across a wide range of assignments: Dissertations, theses, academic papers & assignments, essays & resports, PowerPoint presentations, cvs (résumés).

WHAT DO YOU NEXT? AND HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?

I look forward to hearing from you! Just tell me what you need and we can then agree on the price/hundred words and the date for completing the work. The price shown above is the normal minimum but depends on the work you need me to do.
