Description

This course will take you through three stages of research writing: Pre-Thesis, Working Thesis and Post-Thesis. 

Like a good recipe, research writing happens in focused sections that come together in the end. In each part, you will learn the most important concepts and skills to move through each step. There are practical guides as and practice for each part.

Working your way through this rather large process will help you identify your own system of research writing that can be applied in school or at work. You will strengthen and refine the parts you are weakest at, and build on your strengths.

There is no 'one' way to research and write, but there are clear, objective skills and steps that are expected. This course will introduce these to you, and prepare you for deeper study. 

Who is the target audience?
  • International students looking to study in a native English program
  • Native English speakers needing to improve their academic skills
  • Business people who want to refine their communication skills

I have been involved in the English Language Learning industry for nearly twenty years working in three different countries. My experience teaching thousands of students from all over the world has led me to develop lessons that impact those needing to improve specific skills, or their ability in general. 

As a former IELTS Examiner I understand the needed approaches for standardized tests, and with my deep knowledge of academics, I can help students connect foundational rules to student understanding.

Improving in English means different things to different people. I hope my lessons help you along the path to success.
