Service Description

I have a B.A. in English from Wesleyan University as well as a M.A.T in Secondary Education from Columbus State University, where I graduated with honors. In my student life, I won awards for poetry and creative writing, and served as editor in chief of my high school's literary magazine for consecutive years. In my life as an educator I have taught many subjects, from creative writing to American Literature to journalism, as well as chemistry, physical science, and social studies. I also advised the school yearbook for several years and my books were recognized for both quality and design.

As a teacher and editor I am a stickler for clarity, precision, and polish; I have years of experience teaching high school English and journalism and extensive experience proofreading and copyediting. I also have a personal interest in student growth and academic achievement. I am an ardent reader and puzzle-solver, delighting obsessively in Scrabble and all manner of word games, and constantly seeking new ways to meld creativity, wit, and the punctilious application of proper grammar & usage.

I provide:

* Professional and reliable writing and editing services
* Flawless work that exceeds expectations
* Efficient communication & personal attention to your project
