Service Description

What I can offer you above all is my attention to detail.

I will leave no stone unturned when it comes to putting the finishing touches on your project, no matter how big or small!

My varied educational and professional background means that, with me, you are getting a range of experience for your project. As an undergraduate student at the prestigious University of California, Los Angeles, I honed my writing and academic skills while completing a range of engaging coursework, from Sociology to Biology, gaining a degree in History.

After that, I worked abroad as a teacher in Japan before returning to complete a Teaching Credential in California, followed by work for the U.S. military for several years with youths from age 2 to 18.

Now, as a master's candidate at San Diego State University's highly regarded Learning Design & Technology Department (formerly Educational Technology), I am challenging myself to become even better and to follow my passion, broadening my horizons further to encompass learning theories and the nuts and bolts of how to get information across, quickly and effectively. Using the best medium for the information, I produce high-quality, clear, and engaging learning materials that incorporate strong visuals as well as humor.

No matter your needs, be they expository, marketing copy, a PowerPoint presentation, or even a short video or simple website, I can help make it clearer, more engaging, and more accurate.

I am new to Elance, but I...
