English as a Second Language (ESL), English as a Foreign Language (EFL)

Can peer writing Coaches and Consultants help me write like a native speaker?

No. First, Coaches and Consultants do not have the specialized training required to provide ESL/EFL instruction. Second, no instructor, however skilled or experienced, can offer simple rules or tricks to make you a strong writer. Rather, the ability to write in a foreign language develops slowly, requires long exposure to excellent models of written English, and demands much practice.
