Will edit your work as if my best friend wrote it
   United States
  |   Syracuse, NY

Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $27

After a very successful career in research and assessment, I have gone on to a a second career as an editor, something for which I have actually been training all my life. I am very good and very experienced at this [did I mention the modesty part ?]. I am equally adept with words and numbers, and will insure that your paper is written as efficiently and accurately as possiblle.
There may be a few better editors—there’s always somebody better—but no one will outwork me. No one will work harder on your document. I promise you that.

Service Description

This is just a little more detail for those who like a little detail, and feel that it adds to credibiity. There is a bit of overlap with the home page. If detail is not what you want, you can skip this (perhaps except the few sentences in boldface).

The skill that is actually least obvious from my resume, but which is as good as any, is that of editor. I have more than a dozen publications in refereed journals, and in excess of fifty conference presentations. Participating in hundreds of studies, and writing, reading, and critiquing (mine and others’) more than 1000 papers has helped me develop my editing skill a very great deal.

Editing also may be, as has been noted elsewhere on these pages, the skill most useful to the greatest number of people, which another reason I call special attention to it here. I would not turn down a research or evaluation project that interested me, but this website features editing.

Two sentences from my home page bear repeating: I assure you that I will edit your work as if it were written by my closest friend. This is a promise: no one will work harder to make your paper as good as it can possibly be. I can perhaps give you a little more than many editors; I am as comfortable with numbers as with words.

I will ensure precision in wording and freedom from errors. I am very particular about my work, and take a great deal of pride in the quality of my performance. I have a Doctorate in Education, and have worked in school...
