Service Description

My English degree helped me learn many skills that are necessary to being an effective freelance writer. I have a strong background in reading and critiquing literature. I was required to write several research projects for nearly every class within my major. These projects helped develop my critical thinking skills and my ability to link together separate schools of thoughts and ideas.

My three year employment with Cinemark taught me to balance school with work, and as a result I am able to effectively juggle multiple tasks. It also allowed me to develop a strong work ethic. In my final year of school, I achieved a 3.75 GPA for the fall semester and a 3.8 during the spring.

The combination of my education and strong work ethic make me an effective proofreader, editor, and writer. My strongest writing concentrations are in creative writing, research writing, reviews, and editorials. Two grammar-intensive linguistics courses give me a strong background in proofreading. I had the opportunity to critique others' writing in nearly all of my major-specific classes.
