For students of English

English online tutoring in both real time and via email or other electronic platforms like DropBox or Google.  Students may choose tutoring via either mode or in combination, i.e. blended online tutoring and learning.  Sometimes it’s helpful to discuss writing challenges in real time.

For authors and creative writers

Projects are discussed and fees determined based on the brief.  Fees depend on whether you require copy and inline editing, or developmental editing.

I will also work with authors who need a fresh and analytical eye on plots, character development and timelines including for historical accuracy so that the piece of work is authentic and consistent.

All rates are quoted and billed in South African Rands (ZAR).
