Consultant psycholinguist offering bespoke and trusted language skills development in central Manchester, M3.

Methodology

Oliver Delgaram-Nejad is an interdisciplinary (psycholinguistics) PGR at Manchester Metropolitan University. His PhD research examines the composite language and communication phenomena of schizophrenia, as relative to figurative language processing, using experimental psycholinguistic methods; his master's dissertation focused on paralinguistics: blended displays (i.e. complex facial expressions) of emotion; and his bachelor's took the form of a stylistics combined honours (i.e. linguistics with creative writing). His vocational experience includes a substantive clinical education post within NHS psychiatric services—specifically, as an interpersonal communications tutor; in parallel, he has provided consultancy services since 2011.

Oli is a great tutor, really helps me to understand and explains everything really clearly. A great help for revision as I just feel so much more confident already, after only 3 sessions with him

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Oli for all the tutoring help he has given me this year. He has helped me to secure a place at my first choice university and I don't believe I would have without him! Oli is very knowledgeable and a really lovely guy who genuinely cares about his students. Definitely recommend! Thanks Oli
