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 30 minutes and must be booked in advance. If you are interested, please go to and click on SELECT TIMES to request a slot.

Once you have done so, it is important to send an example of your previous written work, for example an essay, to me in advance at so that I can evaluate the type of guidance and resources you require.
