Patently English

 Authentic English for Speakers of Other Languages



Would you like to write, speak and pronounce English the way a native English speaker would?  Would you like to master business, legal, or technical English to help you advance in your job or attract more English-speaking clients?  If so, you have come to the right place.

Based in London, I am a retired patent lawyer with a doctorate in chemistry from Oxford University, over 40 years' experience in the pharmaceutical industry, and a qualification in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages recognised by the British Council. That background gives me a rare combination of qualifications and experience to provide personal coaching in business, legal, scientific, and medical terminology, as well as presentation skills and everyday conversational English.


The primary aim of my business is to help Speakers of Other Languages develop their skills by providing 1:1 coaching.  Please note that this is an executive service for busy professionals who frequently use specialist English vocabulary for international communication in their day to day jobs.  It is not aimed at beginners or students who would benefit more from a stay in an English speaking country or a course at a Language School.
