Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $10

I am uniquely enabled to give my Elance jobs more attention than necessary, because Parkinson's Disease has taken away my ability to walk, which has resulted in my spending much of the day at my pc.

A few days before the beginning of WWII, I enlisted in the USCGR as an Apprentice Seaman, and after a year of sea duty was tested for Officers Candidate School, and received an IQ rating of 172. I have a 1945 letter from the Commandant of the USCG Academy, notifying me I had graduated 25th in a class of over 200 (More than 400 had started).
In 1949, I was tested in Pittsburgh by The Allegheny Vocational Counseling Institute, and graded in the Upper One-Half of One-Percent of College Graduates. To verify my unusually high grading I was retested, with the same result.

Even if my job requires proofreading only, I will accomplish for my job providers more than expected or required, and will do so expeditiously. For example, if I detect a possible "legal-exposure" problem, I will call it to the attention of my authoring source, along with my suggested revision of the affected text.
