I also offer personally-tailored, individualized English conversation practice (including etiquette) and coaching in writing techniques. Finally, I edit texts such as magazines, business proposals, memorandums, emails so they are presented in English which does not embarrass you or your organization.

Merciful spell-checker

I was sending an important message to someone and did not notice, until my beloved spell-checker did, that I had misplaced a space - a simple mistake which had potentially unpleasant consequences.
     Where I had meant to write "an album", I had in fact written "anal bum" -- as in "I have received your photos and will put them up in anal bum".
     Thank you for your errand of grammatical mercy, Mr Gates.
