Service Description

After years of assisting undergraduate and graduate students with academic essays, dissertations, resumes, graduate school applications, and persuasive speeches, I am seasoned at demonstrating abstract concepts, expressing my thoughts in a professional and concise manner, and adjusting my writing to fit a variety of styles.

I have a strong editorial eye, with extensive experience in writing for a variety of purposes, and a tutor's touch when it comes to giving ideas life. My experiences at NewsPortalSite Corporation have given me insight into website monetization, SEO optimization, site monetization, and traffic building strategies. With this, I have learned realistic techniques for developing a successful online presence.

In plainer terms, I can tackle what you toss my way.

THE ESSENTIALS:
I abhor plagiarism.

I focus on quality, not quantity, so you can expect to find prose packed with power, rather than filled with fluff.

My work ethic makes it impossible for me to miss a deadline.

Just-about perfect grammar, punctuation, sentence structure (and variety) govern my life.

I am educated in Chicago, AP, and MLA styles.

Projects will be completed by the designated date and time, according to employer's requests. (My email will be provided to you after project specifications are agreed upon.)

PORTFOLIO:
An error occurs whenever I try to revise documents within my portfolio. To address this, I have provided a link (in my portfolio) to my website, which displays...
