I am a former UK university academic with over 15 years of experience followed by, in the last six years, consultancy and interim management work. I am based in Warsaw, Żoliborz. I can deliver face-to-face (if sanitary regulations allow), or online.
I am kept busy with a number of personal projects, that I wish to supplement by helping clients in Poland communicate effectively in English (because I enjoy it).
I am looking for a few select clients (individuals or small groups), at minimum CEFR B2 level, who wish their academic or business English to be brought up to a high professional level. I am charging a high rate simply so I can give a high level of service to a few clients, rather than taking as many lessons as possible. I also wish to focus on doing what I enjoy, am best at, and do it well.
I offer the following services:
1) Business/Technical English. Apart from a scientific academic career (degrees in chemistry and artificial intelligence), I am MBA qualified and have management experience. Therefore I can teach to your specific requirements. I also taught business English in a language school, plus computer science and business in UK universities.
2) Academic English/Writing. I have already taught academic writing with very positive student feedback. I have published numerous academic papers and business reports in English and I would be happy to teach you how to write for publication and/or clients. I am an associate examiner for the University of London and previously supervised PhD theses. I know what university examiners, reviewers, etc look for. If you are working on an advanced thesis (e.g. PhD) I can help you master writing academic English to a high standard.
3) Copy-editing/proofreading. I am happy to discuss rates - I have worked on high impact reports in the past in business, policy, and academia. If a Polish-English translation is also required, I can refer you to good translators.
I am not interested in working for language schools (I already worked for one of the world's best).
I am operating through a (non-VAT registered) działalność gospodarcza and so will issue invoices.
