About the lesson

With 35 years' teaching and editing experience, I have the expertise to help clients express themselves clearly and confidently in English.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I specialise in editing writing by people whose first language is not English, or who lack confidence in writing. My clients include MA and PhD students who want to produce a well-written dissertation or thesis. I also work with professionals in any field who need to communicate effectively. My service involves not only the correction of spelling, punctuation and grammar, but, more importantly, in-depth work with clients to make their writing intelligible and precise.

Teaching
I work with students and professionals who have a specific aim in mind, such as developing and using language for academic, professional or technical presentations.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

Following my MA in English Literature from the University of Oxford, I obtained a PGCE at the University of Manchester, and an RSA Diploma in TEFL. I was later awarded a Teaching Certificate in the Alexander Technique, and most recently an MA in Applied Linguistics.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £30 an hour for teaching and editing.

My minimum charge for editing is £30, but the final cost depends on the quality of writing submitted. In my experience, most clients want me to help them produce a text that is accurate, easy to read and understand, and fit for purpose. For this reason I provide a free reading and estimate, so that I can give a clear idea of the work involved.

I also offer support throughout the final year of a university course. This includes 20 contact hours a term, and revision of written work. P.O.A.

- Where do you teach?

I work in the way my clients find most convenient, whether face to face, by phone, or online, using a combination of Skype and editing software.

- When are you available?

I work during the day and in the evenings.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I work with undergraduates and postgraduates, and with those in professional life.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I help undergraduates and postgraduates to obtain their degree by working with them on with their assignments and dissertation. I also help PhD students with their thesis, and to prepare for their viva.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I teach and edit online using a combination of editing software, messaging and Skype.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I will help you clarify your aims,and develop the language and self-esteem necessary to achieve those aims.

About Judith

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have many years' experience of teaching language and reading development one-to-one and in groups. I have taught EFL in schools and companies in the UK, Asia and Latin America. I have also prepared materials, policies and models of good practice in schools.

For the last 17 years I have travelled internationally as an examiner of spoken English, and worked as a freelance editor and teacher.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I have an up-to-date DBS Certificate.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I did my first degree at St Hugh's College, Oxford and my PGCE in Manchester. I completed my RSA Diploma in TEFL in Sheffield, and my MA in Applied Linguistics at the University of Northumbria, Newcastle. Don Burton was head of school when I studied the Alexander Technique in Kendal.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I have students from China, Japan and Vietnam. I also edit documents for international clients in various professional and academic fields, including electronics, economics, medicine, history and translation studies.
