Want to write better English at work ? London-based writer-editor offers workshops and short courses

Methodology

I have worked throughout my career in copywriting, journalism, editing, and book publishing. I offer individual consulting to adults (mainly with English as a second language) who want to improve any kind of writing project in English, in any subject area. This includes presentations, speeches, reports, letters and more.

Experience

I have been editing the written work of others for the last 25 years on a professional basis - and am now moving into individual consulting and tutoring. This is project-based work, so the student will bring a piece of written work to the class, and we will look at aspects that can be improved, and what kind of English language structures and vocabulary will help to build on the learning in the future.
