I am a native speaker from Boulder, Colorado, U.S.A. offering English proofreading, text editing, and German, French, Spanish, Russian, Polish to English translation services (using the assistance of bilingual native speakers from these countries) by E-mail. I also offer fun and interesting conversation practice and grammar tutoring in person or via Skype. That means whether you are in cities like Vienna, Munich, Berlin, Düsseldorf, Zurich, Geneva, Paris or Moscow, we can practice your English conversation skills via the wonder of online video telecommunication. These lessons can be tailored to your individual needs. We can work on business/economic English, or just discuss global issues, politics, art, sports, science, travel, music, environmental and human rights problems or anything you like!
I have taught English to all types and ages of people, including students, business people and world travelers, both privately, and at various language institutes and English camps in Austria. I have taught directly on-site at various firms in Vienna as well, including giving group conversation practice lessons to engineers, sales and marketing staff, customer service representatives and other administrative or manufacturing related employees.
I have worked as an editor and proofreader for environmental and geotechnical consulting companies in Florida, as well as for professors from around the world. I have been giving editing and proofreading assistance to university students with their Master's and PhD theses and to professors with their post-doctoral research papers on a wide range of subjects from 1990 until now. I have helped many small firms in Germany, Switzerland and Austria to translate their websites into English. I am broadly educated in English, Geology, Chemistry, Biology and Geography from colleges in the U.S.
