Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $33

I have a passion for language, and a penchant for detailed writing and editing, thorough research, and efficient multi-tasking (I love to-do lists). I graduated from the University of Maryland at College Park in 2010, with a B.A. in English Language and Literature. I received a 4.0 GPA and Summa Cum Laude honors. I also received English Honors and wrote a 40-page thesis during my last year. I did some freelance editing after I graduated, and now I work in a local, highly-esteemed community college.

Service Description

I have experience editing and proofreading masters and bacherlors theses, essays, poetry, prose, novels, web content, and Standard Operating Procedures, to name several. I love to edit; I unabashedly admit that it is my dream job. I am young but I am good -- I can be hard-line and cooperative at the same time, I will get the job done quickly and efficiently, I can pour myself into assignments and readings, and I will deliver on any job given to me with exceptional performance.

I will edit and proofread for grammar, syntax, form, citation and bibliography, tone, and anything else you specify. I will also create original documents and databases, perform data analysis and input, and various other clerical work. I am a thorough and efficient worker, and I love what I do.
