Professional English tutor with broad experience in academic writing including English as a second language

Methodology

I am dedicated to helping students become the best writers they can be and to help them achieve a greater understanding of the academic writing process. I can help you with your writing along every stage, from planning to citations and everything in between. I conduct my sessions professionally and with purpose and organization. I like to start by identifying the requirements of the paper and where it needs work, and then focusing on the areas that can be most improved for the rest of the session. I always conclude with a summary of the session including things to work on going forward.

Background

I am a professional English editor and writing advisor. I have experience working as an English teacher, professional and freelance editor, and academic writing tutor. I am particularly skilled in helping students for whom English is not their first language. I have a Master's degree in Publishing, Bachelor's degree in Arts (English), post-graduate diploma in Teaching English as a Second Language, and two certificates in French as a Second Language.
