Learning English

For Students

The editors of Earlyworks Press are qualified English Language teachers with experience in creative writing, fluency workshops, business English and teacher-training. If English is not your native language, or if you wish to develop your language skills, you are just one email away from a friendly tutor who has plenty of help to offer.

Exam Preparation

If you are going to sit an exam, you sometimes need more than course-books and classroom time. Email Earlyworks Press, and we can arrange for a regular exchange of emails or letters offering support, advice and personally chosen preparation exercises.  Our tutors have designed and taught Cambridge, Pitman and IELTS exam courses, and have many years experience of the tasks you face.  contact us.

Earlyworks Press Essay Primer

Having problems getting started?  Know the facts, but can't organize them onto paper?  Not sure what is expected of you?  Send us a draft essay, up to 2000 words.  Tell us the question/title you were working on, and your level of study (eg A level, undergraduate etc), and send a brief letter telling us about your course, your study experience, your needs - whatever you would like to discuss. For 20, we will send you a personalized study skills primer, suggesting what you need to do to get those higher grades.

English Language Tutors

If English is not your first language and you need help with coursework, essays, formal letters, or other texts in English, contact us and tell us about your needs.

Note to ESOL students

If you have recently arrived in the UK and are having difficulty with the language, it is wise to enquire about community facilities before paying for educational services.  Most councils and/or education authorities will direct residents to local sources of free basic English and literacy training.
