Professional Experience and Qualifications
Welcome! I am a qualified, freelance English tutor with over 20 years’ experience. I started my teaching career in Warsaw, Poland in 1998, then taught at the University of Manchester for 13 years.
The courses I taught at the university were highly rated by students, and I helped hundreds of students pass the IELTS, FCE, CAE and CPE exams. I now teach students individually and in small groups over Skype.
In addition to teaching, I have extensive experience of proofreading commercial documents and academic writing, and I am a member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP).
I have three postgraduate qualifications in teaching English as a second language, including a master’s degree from the University of Manchester.

Proofreading and Copy-editing
I have done proofreading work for students at the University of Manchester, Manchester Business School and Salford University. I use Track Changes to correct and comment on your work.
for University Students
I offer proofreading of academic essays, dissertations for bachelor’s and master’s degrees, and PhD theses.
for Cambridge Exam Students
If you are studying for one of the Cambridge exams, I proofread and edit tasks 1 and 2 IELTS writing, as well as the writing tasks for FCE, CAE and CPE.
Jenny has a warm, sociable and sincere personality. She understands my goals and goes the extra mile to help me achieve them. My lessons with her are fun and interesting. She gives me detailed corrections on my essays and I can rely on her for prompt feedback.
Jenny helped me to pass my IELTS exam with an overall 8.0 and now I can happily apply for my chosen LLM program. The lessons were fun and focused on the skills that I had to improve the most.
Jenny helped me to improve both fluency and accuracy through precious advice on the Cambridge Proficiency English exam. The positive atmosphere of Jenny’s classes increased my self-confidence and defused the tension for the final exam, which I passed with the highest mark.
The quality of Jenny’s work is outstanding. She has professionally assisted us with text editing for our firm’s website, and we are highly satisfied with the results.
Her dedication, professionalism and ability to make things clearer, and easier to read, makes her a professional that we highly recommend.
