Dr VICTORIA PHILPOTTS
Qualified Teacher & Linguist
PhD, MA, BA (Double Hons), PGCE
MANCHESTER PRIVATE TUTOR, PROOFREADER & COPY-EDITOR
As the qualifications listed above suggest, I have dedicated my life to learning, educating both myself and the people around me.
With a love of languages, culminating in a PhD in linguistics, I have had the pleasure of learning and teaching English, German, French and Spanish over many years.
I have extensive experience of both teaching and proofreading and am now established as a private tutor, proofreader and copy-editor, working from my home in Didsbury, south Manchester.
WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?
As a native speaker of English working from my Didsbury home, I offer face-to-face and online private tuition in English, German, French and Spanish to students of all ages. I also provide an academic proofreading and copy-editing service, and clients are welcome to visit or contact me by email, phone or Skype.
My tutees are wonderfully varied. From Key Stage 1 through to degree level, from young children and teenagers to adults, from GCSE and A-level students to those who are learning purely for pleasure, I offer flexible private tuition of the highest quality in English, German, French and Spanish to build understanding and confidence in a supportive, positive and creative environment. For those who are unable to travel easily to my south Manchester base, I also happily offer online tuition.
PROOFREADING AND COPY-EDITING
For academic publications, whether a PhD thesis, a journal article or a conference paper, quality is key. Spotting grammatical mistakes and minor errors can be difficult in our own work, especially if the work is complex. If you are a non-native speaker of English, no matter how good your knowledge of the language is, it is extremely difficult to make academic work written in English sound natural without the help of a native speaker. I have several years’ experience in this field, especially copy-editing for non-native speakers of English in the arts and humanities.
