Your industry expert
Who I am, and why I want to help you succeed.
Hi, I’m Michelle Guillemard – Founder of Health Writer Hub, and your ESL writing teacher. For more than 10 years, I’ve been teaching people worldwide (40+ countries) how to write clearly about complex topics. I’ve assessed hundreds of writing samples from non-native speakers. Working 1:1 with writers from so many countries has given me a unique insight into the specific writing challenges that ESL writers face. This means I know exactly what you struggle with and how to help you achieve your goals!
Here’s another fact about me: Not only have I taught writing to hundreds of non-native speakers, but I’m also married to a non-native speaker! That means I spend a lot of time communicating with non-native speakers at work and outside of work. So, I know firsthand the challenges you face when it comes to clear communication. (I’m also studying my B1 level in French.)
I’ve developed this course to help you identify and correct the most common ESL writing errors. After following the tips and techniques in the course, you will improve your writing skills now and in the future. The Essential ESL Writing Skills Course has an exclusive focus on writing training for non-native speakers. So, what do you say – are you ready to write better English? Let’s go!
