I also tutor clients who want to improve their English at an academic level for exams such as the SAT, IELTs, EPSO and TOEFL. These include high school students, college students as well as professionals, ranging from engineers to young interns at the EU parliament. I assist with exam based preparation to achieve the desired results and my clients have not been disappointed so far. I have further proofread, edited, written and improved a large amount of essays, college applications, theses, personal statements, and assignments for various clients at an academic level. I like to make my lessons interesting, but at the same time, I make sure that they are as productive as possible. With a thorough understanding and experience of English grammar and literature, I further take care of ghost writing, proof reading and editing of academic and professional papers.

Presentation Design, Speech Writing and Orathorical Practice
They say talking in public is the no1 fear in the world. How about preparing for it intensively, so when the moment comes, you will be confident, engaged and clear, even if your knees are still shaking? I have been coaching debate and public speaking to young people for 4 years. I have a lot of experience in speech writing and helping others prepare for talking in front of a crowd. What we can achieve together: - learn to compose a good speech -> with all the necessary elements in order to have a persuasive effect - design a killer presentation -> complicated ideas sometimes require visual aid for the public. Learn to let go of comic sans and how not to undermine a good talk with outdated graphic work - practice speaking -> 99%blood sweat and tears. I can help you present over, and over and over again until you are satisfied and confident that nothing can go wrong. Remember that all the great speakers of this world made history by practice, not by intuition or accident. My main goal for this course is that you would acquire autonomy to write your own speeches and manage presentations with less effort by being more and more persuasive.

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.
