Proofreading and editing
I also arrange provision of French to Finnish and Italian to Finnish translation services.
I provide English instruction in competitive terms. The training is tailored around client needs. As a starting point, I measure the competence levels of the students and group them accordingly as appropriate. The skill level measurements and the training itself guide me in preparation of training content relevant for the field in question, so that all students can build up their skills in ways that are optimal just for them. As language instructor, my bottom line is that all training I provide needs to be effective as well as fun and personal! While language learning does involve pure memorisation, it should also aim at enabling the eureka effect and building upon existing knowledge.
Journalism is something I’ve also done ever since starting my business. I’ve written dozens of interview-based and other articles in English for three different print and online publications. I record all my interviews to meticulously go over them later and handpick the most pertinent information for the story. As it is essential to get the facts right, the interviewees are always provided an opportunity to review the article draft prior to publishing.
