Service Description

I have a BA in English, am a certified and accredited high school advanced English teacher. I resigned from my teaching career after the birth of my first child in order to become a full-time parent. My career as a freelance editor began four years ago. As a stay-home-mother, I needed to do something to keep alive the professional in me, and reading Dr. Seuss just wasn't cutting it, so I began tutoring and doing a bit of light editing and proofreading for former colleagues of mine. In pursuing a freelance career in editing/writing, I began completing jobs for clients via Elance about three years ago, and for every job I have completed, I have received excellent feedback and reviews of my work.

Not only do my editing skills include the basic correcting and restructuring of writing, but I am very focused on keeping the originality of any work that I edit intact and true to the writer's original style and meaning. When editing, I always provide input on all aspects of the author's work,...
