I recently completed my PhD in the humanities at Johns Hopkins University with extensive experience writing for a wide range of audiences. As an educator, I have taught both ESL and EFL English-language essay writing with an emphasis on not only grammar and syntax but also argumentative structure and persuasiveness. My research skills include French-English, Italian-English and Latin-English translation. In the past, I have both served as the web-editor for a small, literary magazine (thevoidmagazine.com) and have rewritten telemarketing scripts for call centres. I scored a 790 (99th percentile) on the GRE verbal reasoning section and am eager to apply my experience and expertise to any writing challenge.
