Service Description

I am an Ivy-League educated writer, editor, and educator. I have been an English teacher for the past several years, an experience which has deepened my expertise in writing and grammar. I am currently establishing my career as a freelance writer and editor. I have chosen this career path because I enjoy the flexibility and the opportunity to use my skills in creative ways.

I offer the following services:

WRITING EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES/ YA LITERATURE
As a former middle school and high school English teacher, I have spent thousands of hours with teenagers. If you are creating educational resources or writing YA literature, my knowledge of adolescent interests and learning styles can benefit you.

I have experience creating and editing the following teaching resources:
-ACT and SAT preparation practice
-Common Core State Standard aligned assessments and curriculum
-Unit plans
-Lesson plans
-Worksheets
-Model/mentor texts
-Supplemental resources for textbooks

My expertise is in substantive editing; I can work with you to restructure or rewrite parts of your draft so that your ideas shine. If your writing simply needs the polish of copy editing, I can ensure that your product is flawless.

I would welcome the opportunity to create resources for your project or to assist you in...
