I have over ten years of experience in teaching writing to and editing documents for non-native speakers of English from East Asia. I have helped a number of undergraduate and graduate students through the process of drafting and polishing statements of purpose and other application essays. All of these students were accepted into top-ranked colleges, including the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Colorado-Boulder, among others.
I have authored or co-authored 15 non-fiction books, on subjects ranging from Inventions to the Olympic Games to Economics for Kids. I also used to write obituaries for The London Times, a job which required the highest standards of written English. My main strengths include flexibility and breadth of experience. I am equally comfortable writing for general, academic and business audiences.
I hold a first-class degree in English Language and Literature from Oxford, an MPhil from Cambridge and a teaching degree from the University of Edinburgh. I have tutored at both undergraduate and postgraduate level across a wide range of subjects and written for national publications including the Guardian and the Independent.
I am a native English speaker from South Africa, and have studied master's degrees at both Oxford and Cambridge. I have studied engineering, economics as well as Chinese international relations. I am currently learning Mandarin.
