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.

English Course Which Will Make You More Desirable to Employers
If you have ambitions to become an international businessperson, it’s essential that you’re able to speak English fluently. Even if you’re not thinking of living and working abroad, that doesn’t mean you won’t find English a helpful language to put on your CV. There may well be plenty of English-speaking multinational corporations with offices in your home country. What’s more, careers that involve lots of travel or international exposure, use English as their official language, and many employers in these sectors are likely to require evidence of a certain level of proficiency in English before they will consider employing you. This means that if you can speak English, you’ll find that you have a greater number of possible careers to choose from. Have I convinced you yet? If you’ve been inspired to learn English, consider enrolling in my course!
