I enjoy a fulfilling freelance career working with a wide range of interesting students and clients - individuals and companies - from all over the world. I design and deliver bespoke courses. I offer both personal and online tutoring, teaching and coaching. I facilitate communication processes in organisations. I coach people who need to deliver presentations and speeches. I mentor creative writers, giving constructive and detailed critique. I train in all aspects of business writing. I support speakers of other languages in their learning of English for business or for personal use. I provide 1:1 speaking and essay writing tuition for students of any English language-based subject and of any level to undergraduate and post-graduate studies. I undertake a wide range of writing commissions. I provide high quality and comprehensive editing and proofreading services. I love the variety of the work, and the process of continuously learning from it.
I have an honours degree in English from London University, a post-graduate dertificate in Education from Oxford University, a masters degree in Adult and Continuing Education (with distinction), a post-graduate diploma in Facilitation from the Institute for the Development of Human Potential, and a post-graduate diploma in Journalism and Sub-Editing from the London School of Journalism (with merit). I also trained to certificate level as a copy editor and proof reader with a UK publishing company, and completed a highly selective six month course in Writing a Novel with the Faber Academy.
My work is prompt, reliable, bespoke, accurate and highly professional.
Area Covered: International
I worked in education, training and professional development for thirty years. I started my career as an English teacher, a path I followed for six years before moving into adult education management where I reached a senior position.
I left to set up my own consultancy business, Prism Learning, and for ten years travelled extensively in UK and USA, as a freelance facilitator, trainer, and business writer, designing and delivering a wide range of commissioned work across the private, public and third sectors. I specialised in a range of 'soft skills': Communication, Personal Development, Building Self-Esteem, Emotional Intelligence, Team Work, Leadership and Customer Relations Management.
Five years ago, in order to concentrate on my greatest area of interest - language and communications - I took the important decision to change the focus of the business. I now work more from my home base, travelling less, but meeting an even greater number of people through freelance tutoring, teaching and coaching, writing and editing. I took a Post-Graduate diploma course with the London School of Journalism, in order to hone my writing and editing skills.
I am a member of the Institute for the Development of Human Potential [IDHP], a Fellow of the Royal Society for the Arts [RSA] and an associate of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders [SfEP].
While I have been a member of People per Hour for a number of years, I have bid for very little work. However, the feedback I have had for work I have done through PPH has been excellent, and the projects have been 100% enjoyable. I can supply other references if required. I look forward to working with you!

Thank you for all your help, Georgina. I really like that way you flexed around me and my needs, whilst still giving me structure and guidance. You really listened to me and fulfilled the brief extremely well. If I need any further help in the future, I will definitely get in touch. I really enjoyed working with you and your personable approach made the whole experience so pleasant. I hope these few words are a sufficient recommendation in themselves, but if anyone would like a more explicit reference, I’ll be happy to be more specific. Excellent work.
