Steve Roberts - Christchurch Dorset - Freelance Writer - Private Tutor - Public Speaker - Author
Welcome to Steve Roberts's Website
This is me hard at work in my study in Christchurch, most probably thinking up another article to write. I am a freelance writer, but also a private tutor and public speaker. My website will tell you everything you need to know about all of my activities and how to get in touch with me if you think I can help you.
To find out more about my writing, tutoring or public speaking, just follow the links on the left (couldn't be simpler).
I work full-time from home, so am easy to get hold of (just have a look at 'CONTACT ME' below).
If you want to know more about me, please read my 'Profile' page, which tells you a bit more about my misdemeanours from birth to present.
The 'Destinations' and 'Photographs' pages have lists and pictures of many of the places that I've visited, as travel is an important part of what I write about.
