Service Description

If you hire me, you'll get:
A professional committed to completing your job to your satisfaction
A job completed on time

I offer the following services:
Proofreading
Copy editing
Articles
Press releases
Letters
Web content

My training and work experience as an English teacher have given me an extensive range of writing skills and grammatical knowledge. These have been supplemented by a variety of other experiences--the fiction editing mentioned in my overview, copy editing my college newspaper, writing press releases for the school where I taught, working one summer as a technical writer for the U.S. Navy, developing and maintaining several websites for my classes, teaching a journalism class and advising the high school newspaper. Taken all together, this combination of formal and informal training and work experience has prepared me to efficiently and professionally handle jobs for you in the areas indicated above.

I'm a quick learner and enjoy a challenge, so I'd also be open to tackling assignments in other areas which may not exactly match those listed above.
