StephanieAcademic English - Target the Linguistic Skills Needed in an International Academic or Intellectual Career
Do you speak Academic English? Most tutors can help you with everyday conversation and writing. I specialize in the English you need for a successful international academic career in your field of advanced expertise. A native speaker with a BA in Linguistics from University of Chicago, two MAs, and a nearly completed PhD in Philosophy through Boston College, I have over 13 years of post-secondary education experience and have taught English as a Second Language since 2014. I've published academic papers, taught university courses, presented at international conferences, and have been awarded selective grants. So whether your aim is applying for graduate school, gaining confidence in your intellectual eloquence, or writing the perfect book proposal, I have the background to help you prepare for the very specific set of tasks demanded in higher education in the English-speaking world.
Depending on your needs, I can help you master the skills you would need to...
• Explain your research to foreign scholars:
Learn to freely discuss your topic of research and engage in other high-level conversations with the vocabulary and expression appropriate to an intellectual context.
• Improve your academic writing and publish in English journals
Whether targeting the right English journals, honing your style and grammar, or working out the the subtlety of communicating complex ideas in English, I can help you with all stages of the writing process. I've published in English academic journals and specialize in crafting sharp book proposals and grant applications.
• Present your work at international conferences
Gain confidence teaching or delivering formal lectures to an international public. From your first abstract submission to your final draft, I can help you improve everything from your content, style, and delivery to effectively target English-speaking audiences.
The English-speaking world is waiting to hear your great ideas - let's get started!
