IMPORTANT: Please note that the individual coaching will be most effective if you have already completed the Writing Research Papers course.

Looking for one-to-one training on writing in English? Linguapolis specialises mainly in academic writing, but other types of text (e.g. reports, web content, news articles) are also possible.

Submit examples of your own writing and receive individual feedback from a specialised teacher. The feedback will help you build on your strengths and weaknesses and take your writing to the next level.

  • You send a representative sample taken from one of your own texts to the teacher (maximum 1500 words). Please select a text which has not yet been edited by anyone else (e.g. supervisor or colleagues).
  • The teacher analyses the language, style and coherence of the text and prepares the first feedback session. Some of the skills and topics could include:
    • text structure: what’s the best way to organise a sentence, a paragraph and an entire text?
    • style and word choice: which words should be avoided in which contexts?
    • grammar: how can you improve the correctness of your language?
    • fact or fiction: is it really wrong or just your supervisor’s personal preference?
    • developing your own writing skills: what else can you do to make your texts even better?
  • During the first one-hour feedback session, the teacher explains the main strengths and weaknesses identified during the analysis of the text. Extra exercises/resources are provided where necessary and examples are drawn from your text.
  • Using the information and tips from this feedback session, you then correct your own text.
  • After the self-correction, the teacher analyses the corrected text again to make sure that you’ve understood and applied the tips correctly.
  • Finally, you meet your teacher for a second one-hour feedback session to discuss any remaining difficulties. You will learn how to use the tips most effectively to improve your writing in the future.

If you have any specific difficulties or questions, please let your teacher know before the coaching starts.


There is no test at the end of the coaching. We can issue a certificate of attendance on request.
