Academic writing and publishing to help students publish their papers in English.

I’m 63, retired from the Fire Department in Suriname. Use to be the Public Relations Officer of the service for over 18 years. From 1989 – 1993, I was editor-in-chief of the journal of the Moravian Church in Suriname. I obtained my diploma of Bachelor of Arts in Journalism (General Technical Subjects) at the “Academy for Arts and Culture, Higher Education, AHKCO” in 1992. A World Council of Churches scholarship provided me with the opportunity to go through a three-year training program at the Caribbean Conference of Churches in Bridgetown, Barbados (1993 – 1997). During this period, I contributed to some interesting post peer reviews of projects such as “The History of the Church in Latin America”. This scientific history was written by leading scholars from all areas of Latin America. Edited by Enrique Dussel, at that time president of the “Commission for the Study of Church History of the Church in Latin America”. I also worked on some writings of the Caribbean Conference of Churches at the 500thanniversary of the arrival of Christopher Columbus in America. My own graduate paper on weekly church newspapers in Suriname brought me the honor of the first qualified male journalist in my hometown, Paramaribo in 1992.
In 2013, I did some course work (English for Specific Purposes) in the distance learning program of the University Oregon, American English Institution. Peer review was a standard obligation of this study.
Now I’m teaching (Mass Communication and Marketing Communication) at the institution where I graduated 25 years ago, AHKCO.
