What is academic English or academic literacy?
Studying at university levels is an exciting and rewarding experience, but if you are new to higher education, or have not studied for some time, you may find it useful to refresh your reading, note-making, essay-writing, listening and speaking skills, and to revisit the basic rules of punctuation and grammar.
Book private lessons with Alan to build and reinforce your foundations of academic literacy, regardless of your discipline. Common issues in studying, academic writing and referencing are addressed, and you are provided with the opportunity to practise academic literacy skills through a range of activities.
All the lessons are fully tailored towards your needs and goals.
