I can really recommend the workshop scientific writing for supervisors. It shows you how to pinpoint what is wrong in the sentence, rather than just having a vague idea that something is wrong. It makes it easier to comment on students' papers in an efficient and time saving manner. You learn how to get started with a student and how to have them build up an article step by step. And on top of that it refreshes the principles of scientific writing which will improve your own writing skills. This all within a short 2 part workshop. Rimke Vos (Academic Writing Workshop for supervisors)
Last year I attended your ‘academic writing in English' course. Last week I had a meeting with my supervisors to discuss my PhD progress and they mentioned the high quality of my writing. Thanks to you! I noticed that the course really improved my writing. Again, I want to thank you for your very helpful course. Kirsten (Academic Writing 1)
Before taking the first academic writing course with Taylor, writing was a daunting task. After taking the course, writing has become the most enjoyable task. That’s why I did not hesitate to take the academic writing course 2. During this course Taylor helped me to get rid of some of my most common mistakes while writing and to give an easy flow to all my texts. I am very happy with the results. Yared S.

Do you recognize that moment of sitting behind your desk looking at a blank screen, feeling desperate, or that moment of receiving back your manuscript completely red and unrecognizable? I did, but not anymore! My English has significantly improved after following the course “academic writing”. I felt that co-authors understood what I was writing about. Wow! I was delighted! However, I wanted more and followed part 2 of the course. Now, I am even arguing about the English words, grammar, past or present, British versus American, concise writing and the flow of the text. That is what you want, isn’t it? To be a sparring partner in the English language. Taylor is a very good coach in bringing you there! She teaches you how to shape your text into an excellent piece of art! And writing is fun now! Maaike S. (Academic Writing 1&2)
Ik heb bij Premier Taaltraining een privé cursus Engels gevolgd. Omdat ik in het verleden in de Verenigde Staten had gewoond en gestudeerd en daardoor al een behoorlijk kennisniveau had opgebouwd, had ik behoefte aan een uitdagende en op maat gesneden aanpak om mijn spreek-, schrijf- en luistervaardigheden in eigen tempo op te frissen en te verbeteren. Ik heb lang gezocht naar een geschikte cursus die voldoende uitdaging bood. De één-op-één lesmethode van Premier Taaltraining sloeg vanaf de eerste les meteen aan. Doordat veel aandacht is besteed aan het schrijven van betogen en het analyseren van complexe stukken, is mijn kennis in kort tijdsbestek op veel punten verbeterd. De persoonlijke, op maat gesneden aanpak van de lessen levert snel zichtbaar resultaat op. Een aanrader voor iedereen! Guido F. (privélessen)
When I started an individual course with Taylor Krohn, I wanted to improve my English writing. In my professional life, I felt limited when writing scientific papers or emails. In this course, I learned not only to improve my academic writing but also to structure my texts. I also learned some advanced rules of written communication. I now feel more comfortable and able to accurately express my ideas and have even started to correct my colleagues' work. I strongly recommend Taylor as a teacher. She perfectly mixes theory and direct practical advice on your own work. Leïla P. (Academic Writing)
I had some private lessons with Taylor because I needed to considerably improve my academic writing. I am absolutely satisfied with the results. Before knowing Taylor, writing was quite frustrating. Not only is Taylor clear and good at teaching, she is also very encouraging and she stimulated me to develop my own writing style, which I really appreciated! Now I feel more comfortable when I write and I am able to express my ideas. I recommend Taylor as a teacher, I’m sure you’ll notice your improvements in a very short time! Simona M. (private lessons)
Ik ben gestart met Engelse les bij Taylor om mijn spreekvaardigheid ten behoeve van het werk (volgen van Engelstalige conferenties inclusief discussies) te verbeteren. Het resultaat van deze lessen is de snelle vooruitgang in korte tijd door de gerichte oefeningen. De op maat aangeleverde opdrachten waren zeer toegespitst op mijn wensen en interesses.
Ik zou deze lessen aanbevelen. Ik kon leren in mijn eigen tempo en Taylor is een deskundige en geinteresseerde leraar. Ze legt op een rustige en heldere manier grammatica uit. Ze probeert aan te sluiten bij je interesses en stemt adequaat af op je wensen.

Very complete and detailed course. You teach students from scratch to become the real experts of Academic English Writing.

Today I received the comments by two reviewers on the paper I wrote during this class:
"This paper is well written."
"This is an interesting and well-written paper."
So thank you, your advice paid off! :)
