Grammar and punctuation training

Become more confident about your grammar and punctuation

Let’s be blunt – most of us had an appalling education as far as grammar and punctuation are concerned.

That’s where my course comes in. I provide fun, practical and down-to-earth grammar training that covers:

  • why grammar and punctuation are important for readability
  • how to use commas, colons, semicolons, apostrophes and other punctuation marks
  • structuring sentences and paragraphs
  • common punctuation and grammatical mistakes – and how to avoid them
  • how to improve consistency
  • proofreading your own – and other people’s – work
  • tips for proofreading in fast-paced environments.

The course is fun and hands-on, with exercises included throughout.

Who am I?

I’m a former Sydney Morning Herald editor and UTS journalism lecturer with over 20 years of experience across print and online.

Training for organisations and individuals

I provide in-house staff training that can be run online through videoconferencing or on your premises anywhere in Australia.

One-on-one sessions are also available – either through Skype or in person.

This punctuation and grammar course can be tailored to suit your needs – and can also be combined with my editing course.
