Service Description

I offer a comprehensive range of English-language editorial services: proofreading, copy-editing, collaboration, brainstorming help, fact-checking, and ghostwriting. If you want your writing to be as clear and persuasive as it can be, I'm here to help.

My experience includes approximately five years of work as a university graduate teaching assistant, including extensive consultation with students on their written work, and one year of work as a college English composition tutor.

I have presented my writing in conferences at Harvard, the City University of New York, and the University of Rochester, among other universities, and I am currently writing a book-length doctoral dissertation in American history.

In addition, I have basic reading competence in French and can help polish your translations into English, and I can offer university-quality research assistance for projects in politics and the humanities.

GETTING STARTED

We will also talk about my role in your creative process. Do you just want a final proofreading? Rigorous editing to...
