Other topics? Yes please!... but...
If your project is highly specialised, I will have to do a reasonable amount of research in order to help you correctly.
I do not know anything about building a helicopter; or advanced botany; or specialised veterinary practices in rural Asia…
However, if you can provide specifics or suggest source material, I would love to learn!
What do my colleagues and students say…?

I have over a decade of experience evaluating English language skills.

For a Skype or telephone oral evaluation, the cost of the service is 15 Euros. This evaluation is for information purposes only. I cannot provide an official certificate of any kind. If you require a full-length official evaluation, please contact the British Council or any other official institution.
