Sometimes, it just helps to have someone who can see things clearly, listen to how you speak or look over your written work and tell you: this is what you need to be doing and this is how you can achieve your goal.

it's such a relief to have a professional cut through the confusion and point you in the right direction

After talking with you for just a short time, I'll be able to assess exactly what you need; whether that's accent reduction, grammar correction, the ability to be more or less formal in certain contexts or more concise. I will then set up a customised plan to help you make progress towards reaching your goals whether that be improving your emails, your ability to participate in meeting and negotiations, or simply making smalltalk and networking.

Are you nervous about giving a presentation?

Whether it's just an update to your own team, to an academic conference, a design briefing or a business sales pitch, it can be very nerve-wracking even if your own language - and even more in a second language.

If you have someone like me to listen to you and help you phrase and pronounce things in a way that your audience will pay attention to and, of course, correct any errors, then you wouldn't go in fully prepared and wouldn't need to feel so nervous.
