Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $30

I'm a native speaker of English and a trained and certified English instructor with an MBA, who has been traveling for the past ten years and supporting those travels through freelance editing and translation work, in addition to teaching English, with a focus on test prep (GRE, GMAT, SAT, TOEFL, IELTS) and business classes.

My strengths lie in the English language itself, i.e. editing for spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors. You can find out more about me as a person through my travel blog: DanielMcBane.com.
