Service Description

I have spent many years developing my creative writing abilities in my personal writing and my technical skills for use in the classroom. These experiences have enabled me to become an expert at analyzing the needs of an audience and developing my writing to provide information in an accessible and engaging manner. These skills serve endless applications, such as updating blogs or social networking sites, writing informational brochures, creating tantalizing menu descriptions, composing creative work, or writing a technical report.

As an educator and a writer; my ultimate goal is to make learning feel like a naturally satisfying part of the human experience. I have enjoyed success in the classroom by injecting creative delivery and humor into the writing and speaking involved in each lesson , and I strongly believe that this strategy will serve as an asset to your company as well.
