Through our University work, we have a lot of experience in teaching and supporting students on academic programmes of study.
We can provide training in:

'The teachers at Extra English are very knowledgeable about what we need to succeed in our studies because they work at the University. They have really helped me to improve my grades.'
Hanna Li, China.
‘I am so happy that we found EXTRA ENGLISH when we moved to Chester. They are friendly and helpful and the teaching is really really good. Thank-you.’
If you have to submit an essay or a dissertation and want to achieve the highest grades, you may also want to take advantage of our proofreading service. In our proofreading service we will comment on:
Lexis and vocabulary
Sentence structure, syntax and paragraph structure
Redundancy/repetition and wordiness
Grammar and punctuation
Presentation and formatting
Formatting of in-text citation
Formatting of List of References
We cannot offer:
Direct in text re-writing of your work as universities view this as unethical. We will suggest ways of re-writing to make your meaning clearer but it is your responsibility to check this and make the changes yourself.
