Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $20

I am a US native splitting time between the wild mountains of West Virginia and the urban jungle of a Chinese metropolis. I offer detailed proofreading, writing, and editing services to clients who appreciate clearly communicated messages.

Precise word choice and faultless grammar are my hallmarks. I have an impeccable sense of grammar and convention developed from years as an English language teacher and a nearly obsessive-compulsive editing bug.

If you need a professional who can guarantee that your message is engaging, effective, and...

Service Description

As a proofreader, I thoroughly check your material for faultless punctuation, spelling, grammar, style, and word use. I am highly proficient with AP, APA, Chicago, and MLA styles.

As a copy editor, I read for flow, clarity, and conciseness in your writing. I can rewrite murky text in order to bring to light the hidden message you wish to convey, while maintaining your natural style.

As a writer, I deliver your message with style, precision, and spotless research. I specialize in tourism and education, but like all good writers I enjoy taking on any field.

I also hold a Master in Human Resource Management and have extensive experience recruiting and selecting applicants for a variety of positions, both local and global. This provides me with unique insight into the resume and cover letter writing process, and I design compelling, unique documents that are guaranteed to make you stand out from the crowd.

In all my work, I maintain close communication with clients in order to better understand and appreciate the message you wish to convey. I strive to be accessible and provide updates on my progress, and appreciate working with clients who care enough to be available as well. I never subcontract or outsource work.

Whether you need it edited, written, or proofread, I will achieve your objectives. I take pride in providing clients with quick, quality work at an affordable price. It's your message, clearly communicated!
