Service Description

I can write, proofread, edit, or translate materials in English or Spanish and create a high-quality, professional end product. My skills include:

- Writing and Editing
As a teacher I wrote educational materials such as lesson plans, tests, and parent newsletters. As a government employee I wrote many reports every month. I also had responsibility for all aspects of the organization's quarterly newsletter. While earning my Master's degree, I further developed my skills in APA Style (6th edition) academic writing and was widely recognized by my professors and fellow students for my excellent writing skills. My undergraduate degree included a minor in English. Do you need help writing or editing educational materials, brochures, essays, newsletters, or articles in Microsoft Word or Publisher? Whether your project is in Spanish or English, I can help.

- Developing Presentations
I have conducted numerous training sessions and presentations for a wide range of audiences, both as a teacher/instructor and as a government employee. Do you need help developing an error-free, professional-looking PowerPoint presentation in Spanish or English?

- Spanish/English Translation
As an elementary school teacher, I worked in a bilingual classroom and presented materials in both English and Spanish. While working for the state government, I translated a large section of the child care regulations into Spanish. I have also helped people translate letters, poems, and other...
