• Who We Are •

Harmonious English founder Nina is proud of our track record. Our teaching/educational experience spans some of the world’s leading institutions: the University of Auckland, the University of California at San Diego, New York University, and Victoria University of Wellington, among others. We are acutely aware of what excellence looks like – it’s in our DNA. Our international experience means we have an appreciation of the leaps people take when becoming global nomads and need help with their English.

We love language and our publishing history shows it. We’ve been published in leading international journals such as Afterimage (US), Continuum (Aust), Art New Zealand (NZ), and Art Monthly Australia (Aust), among others. We also have a strong tradition of academic writing and editing and are widely read and educated in the arts, social sciences, and the humanities. Our writing experience extends to grant writing and we have strong success in securing competitive awards and funding.

At the core of what we do is an ethical focus. We do things with integrity. But what also makes us different is our sense of fun. When you work with us, you’ll be connecting with real people with personality who will go on an awesome journey through language with you. Six things we love? Dark chocolate, nostalgia, electronic music, doing good, people power, and traipsing across disciplines and industries.
