My services are:

  • English Language Tuition - English lessons with a focus on Business situations and technical language. Origami English also covers extra-linguistic skills such as body language, tone of voice, and slang
  • Technical Writing - Authoring of all forms of technical documentation (information sheets, manuals, brochures, etc.) in accurate English
  • Proof-reading - Correction of errors in all forms of documentation. Option to return documents with annotation and/or alternative wording
  • UK/USA cultural differences - Origami English uniquely provides advice on the subtle but important differences between these 2 different societies; and how to communicate effectively with people from either

What I don't do:

  • I don't go too fast. I like learning other languages and I know how to make it easier
  • I don't teach for exams. I teach useful English for real-life situations
  • I don't teach beginners; you must have a minimum level of B1 or B2 in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR)

My Origami English doesn't just teach you how to speak English; it enables you to communicate. Contact me and let's get started.
