Andrew Silverman

Andrew's role is to provide English language support to students whose first language is not English. He is available by appointment to meet with students and to discuss their needs. He can offer advice on a variety of English language skills, including:

  • Grammar
  • Vocabulary
  • Punctuation
  • Pronunciation

Before starting at Birkbeck, Andrew previously worked as an English teacher at a language school in Paris.

One-to-one support: these sessions last a maximum of 45 minutes and need to be booked in advance via the email address below. Appointments are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. During busy periods these can get booked up quite far in advance, so it is advisable to contact Andrew as soon as possible. You will be asked to bring with you a piece of work that you have completed in English – for example, an essay – as a basis for the session.
