One-on-One Writing and English Consulting


The NIH Training Center offers a targeted one-on-one tutoring series for employees seeking to improve their written and spoken communication. Target your most urgent needs via 2 individual instruction sessions -- at your convenience!

Session content is customized to non-native and native English speakers’ unique needs. Your own workplace feedback, written documents, and writing projects in progress will be used as instrumental to one-on-one assessment and instruction.


In two 50-minute segments, you can focus on problem areas such as the following:

  • Identifying, remedying, and avoiding your common grammar pitfalls
  • Tightening sentence structure and flow
  • Choosing correctly from commonly confused words
  • Preventing business/workplace writing and speaking missteps
  • Tackling difficult English pronunciation demands
  • Editing and proofreading documents (memos, emails, reports, marketing materials, educational pamphlets, and more)

With this flexible format, you can also opt for a broad a range of instruction to ensure the most common stumbling blocks are covered (and uncovered).
