Service Description

I am willing to proofread just about anything. I love to learn and see this as a great opportunity to engage in something I do well while gaining new information. I obtained my English degree from an accredited college and taught 7th grade English for four years before moving to a nonprofit in 2008. In my four years there I was often asked to write and/or proofread a number of business, informational and academic materials, so I am quite comfortable with both. I received a certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) and worked with an Italian client on editing communications in addition to English tutoring. During my college years I was employed by the college writing lab and have experience with both MLA and APA formats. I am willing to do the research necessary to familiarize myself with other styles. While transcription is not a skill I have mastered, I have excellent keyboarding skills and type 73wpm with 95% accuracy and am also interested in that kind of work.
