Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $11

I have a Bachelor's degree and a Master's degree--both in English. Although I enjoy reading and analyzing literature, writing has always been my passion.

While in college and graduate school, I worked on freelance editing projects in addition to completing assigned classwork. Since then I have worked as a professional proofreader and English teacher (high school and college).

I can assure you that my work will be thorough and precise and that I will give...

Service Description

Although I currently teach literature and composition to high school and college students, I am working toward a full-time career in writing and editing. On a daily basis, I help students with their writing. I point out errors, suggest methods for improvement, and assist them in developing content. I aim to do the same for my clients.

I feel most comfortable working in Microsoft Office, although I'm open to experimenting with other software. Punctuation is probably my favorite thing to correct; I have been known to proofread publications and/or personal emails for fun. I have quite a bit of time to devote to freelance projects, so getting the work done right and in a timely manner will be my top priority.
