Phil Williams

Based in Brighton, UK, Phil Williams is a British-born English tutor, copywriter and creative writer. He is an intermittent traveller who has taught English internationally, including stints in the Abu Dhabi desert and on a building site in Russia, and visited plenty more desolate places in between. He uses his experience, and his life-long learnt talents in writing, to both entertain and to educate, from the brooding post-apocalypse of his début novel, Wixon's Day, to the eminently practical grammar guide of The English Tenses.

Phil publishes his own material, through his own company, working in both book form and through his numerous websites - all of which have a focus on English language, self-improvement, or both. Amongst his sites are the popular English grammar portal, English Lessons Brighton ( and a revolutionary physical fitness website,, as well sites advising on writing for business and for screen or fiction. He promotes lifelong learning to improve both knowledge and health.
