Service Description

Eleven years experience as a high school AP and IB English teacher has made me extremely meticulous and detail-oriented when it comes to the mechanics of the English language. I am looking to get my start in freelance proofreading and editing as well as writing; however, I have had much experience in all three areas.

Years ago, I started proofreading graduate-level work for my co-workers and found that I not only enjoyed it, but also had a knack for catching errors that others overlooked. I have been hired by my district for proofreading and editing jobs as a part of the curriculum creation process. Additionally, I have eight years of experience as a curriculum writer, but I am also proficient at writing in a variety of genres. I understand the magnitude of deadlines, and I work hard to make sure that I keep my commitments.
