Service Description

I offer many different services, including editing, proofreading, researching, and writing. My background in journalism has helped me hone my skills as both a researcher and storyteller. As a former assistant editor at a newspaper, I have a very keen sense of detail as well as the ability to meet strict deadlines. As a certified English teacher, I also have expert knowledge of English grammar, spelling, punctuation, and general usage.

Most importantly, I am a professional in every sense of the word. Your input as the client is extremely valuable to me, and I aim to create a working relationship that is built upon mutual trust and respect. It is my job to respond to your questions and concerns in a timely manner, meet agreed upon deadlines, and deliver a final product that is worthy of your time and money. As a new member of the Elance community, I hope that you will give me a chance to prove my worth!
