    I teach Academic Writing and edit your student assignments if needed

    English academic writing follows a number of specific rules. I teach the main structure that students should follow to succeed in writing essays and dissertations. Additionally, citation rules and practical skills will be discussed. I am also happy to assist with resume and cover letter writing in English.
    Moreover, I also offer copy editing of your assignments and help with related queries for an additional fee (depending on the length of the assignment).

    On my qualifications:
    I completed my Ph.D. in Political Science in 2019. Throughout my studies, I completed additional classes in Academic Writing and Copy Editing. I founded an association that taught Academic Writing classes to graduate students. Since 2012, I have edited numerous papers and dissertations of other students. I work as a researcher and lecturer at a university and as a fact-checker at a think tank. In terms of languages, my mother tongue is German, I completed all my studies in English (and lived in the US and the UK for a number of years) and work in French. I also speak some Swedish and Spanish if that helps you!

    It is important to have some working knowledge of English already.

    Proof-reading and Editing essays, Tutoring and Comprehensive Feedback
    I specialise in Proof-reading and editing essays of any sort of subject and can do this in approx. 3 hours depending on the length of the document. I prefer to utilise google documents as the individual can track the suggested editing and choose to accept/reject changes made. However, other forms of receiving feedback can be discussed. I can provide feedback post-reviewing an essay (if necessary) via skype as well as prior to editing should the person want to discuss how much editing/preferred form of editing needs to be described.
