Service Description

As a writer and an editor, I specialize in proofreading, with an eye toward word-, sentence-, and paragraph-level issues. I also have been studying topics such as language theory, rhetoric, and composition pedagogy in graduate school; these subjects have trained me to keep in mind such higher-order concerns as audience, purpose, language variety, arrangement, style, and more. Such concerns inform my editing practice, as every document should be tailored to its specific rhetorical situation.
