Welcome to Simon Richardson English!

Welcome to my site! If you’re here, it’s probably for one of these three things:

  1. You want to improve your English for general purposes, or for IELTS, TOEFL, FCE, CAE, Trinity Exams or PTE.
  2. You need content written for your blog, product, website or business
  3. You are preparing material, either academic or non-academic, and would like it proofreading and / or editing.

The good news is that you’ve come to the right place! For IELTS, just click on IELTS and More and choose a category from the menu! For anything else, scroll down to my contact details – my email address and phone number – at the bottom of this page!

I have been an English teacher and Academic Manager for 10 years now, so you will find that my site contains a lot of information about education, in particular English. You can look through it all on the right-hand side of the page. Here, you’ll find resources and advice for teachers, interview and professional development tips, and information and help for various English exams. You’ll also find my blog, which is mostly my chance to enjoy a bit of sarcastic comedy, but also contains more educational stuff.

A lot of my content is free, but I create English exam materials, so you can visit my student area to see a few free previews and to then buy some of my content, lessons and tips for all your exams.

You can also get in touch and hire me as a writer or editor through my  page.

Don’t be shy!

I like hearing from people, so do get in touch with me on simonrichardsonenglish@gmail.com if you have any questions, comments, observations… Please note that if you leave a weblink on your comment, it will be automatically sent to the “Spam” folder though!

Near the top of the site, you can also see “About Me” – a very brief summary of my work life to date and “Contact Me” for links to my Facebook and Twitter accounts. You’ll also see “English Lessons / Portfolio” with details of my prices and location, as well as the private services I offer.

Finally, you can look at my “Portfolio” – which includes work from my DELTA and publications.

I hope you enjoy reading my materials, and that you find some helpful or amusing information!

Keeping Fit in Isolation, or “How Not to Become an Epic, Depressed Slob”

Exercise is a pain in the arse – figuratively and often literally. But for a large proportion of the world, the change in mentality you get from leaving the house and entering a gym is enough to provide encouragement to get a sweat on. Take that mechanism away, though, and it is all too easy … Continue reading Keeping Fit in Isolation, or “How Not to Become an Epic, Depressed Slob”
