About me

I’m Elly, a native speaker of British English, living and working in the Netherlands since 2010.

I’m a linguist by training and a self-confessed language geek.

Why choose me for your editing, translation or coaching needs?

I am a highly-trained linguist with academic experience: I have a BA and MA in Linguistics and will soon gain my PhD in Psycholinguistics.

I have worked as a freelance translator and editor since 2009. I have also been employed in-house as a translation project manager and as a broadcast subtitler (for BBC, Channel 4 and other UK television channels).

I’ve been providing one-to-one English tutoring and writing help for the last ten years, including a vocabulary acquisition course in the English programme at Leiden University.
