Strategies for Writing Scientific Papers (C1)

Online One-to-One Tutoring

This flexible, weekly appointment system aims to meet the individual needs of doctoral students who are writing scientific journal articles. Dr. rer. nat. Joy Ramos-Gonzalez (LUH Leibniz Language Centre) offers individual feedback, clarification and tools to improve and accelerate scientific text production. Participants can define their own schedule throughout the year by booking up to ten individual appointments for online consulations or phone sessions. After attending ten sessions (of 1 hour each, with an estimated 30-hour workload overall), a course certificate is issued.



Scientific writing in English is an essential skill for the efficient documentation and communication of research, e.g. in academic journals. This one-to-one tutoring service provides a space for doctoral students to work on their own texts and to individually assess and improve their English writing skills under the guidance of a qualified teacher. The ultimate goal is to enable doctoral students to publish their scientific results in English with minimal linguistic assistance. For this purpose, various tasks focusing on strategies and tools for scientific writing will be made available, so that participants can apply suitable linguistic structures at an advanced level (B2/C1) and avoid systematic errors.
