    Looking for free English tutor to improve writing skills


    Hello.
    I am looking for someone (e.g. retired teacher?) who would be willing to help for free my little cousin who is a 21-year old student in the field of translation. Her problem is when she has to write (or translate from French) in English. She is seeking someone who would be willing to practice with her e.g. review 1 small text a week and provide some tips to help her improve her English.

    It would be wonderful if you could help.

    Many thanks in anticipation.

    Regards,

    You can find translation sites here, though there's virtually nothing on offer for free, I'm afraid: Translation - ESL Web Directory - UsingEnglish.com

    She could try finding international pen pal sites on the web. If she is willing to teach someone some French in return for help with her English, she should eventually find someone compatible. However, she may have to answer a lot of posts from people who want to learn French before she finds someone with the grammatical competence in English to be able to help her.
