Service Description

Ever since I can remember, I have loved writing because words, cleverly phrased, have the power to change the world. My graduate degree in Linguistics has given me a deep understanding of universal grammar, including, of course, all facets of English grammar. Many years of teaching writing and composition to non-native English speakers has provided me with insight into their specific needs and the types of grammatical mistakes they might make based on their first language. I look forward to every opportunity to take a client's raw material and transform it into a written masterpiece.
