Academic English

Academic publishing uses a specialised genre that requires a specific form of language use known as Academic English. I will help you master this special dialect of English. The courses are for those who need to improve their writing (and presenting) skills in Academic English, such as young academics (both native and non-native speakers of English) who are new to this very specific genre, or more established academics who have not published in English before. I teach Academic English writing in collaboration with Taalcentrum – VU in Amsterdam, and with Babel Talen in Utrecht, and I am available for personal tutoring in this genre as well.
