I have had hundreds of essays, articles, stories and poems published across the nation.
I am a certified and experienced English teacher with a strong background in educational assessment and will bring professionalism, integrity, and creativity to your project.
I love to write.
I will provide you with clear, concise, creative text.
Since 2000, I have worked full-time as a self-employed writer and editor. Most of my work has involved writing passages and questions for English language arts assessments for public schools. In this capacity I have had to write all genres: essays, academic articles, narrative fiction, poetry, persuasive letters, biographies, how-to manuals, advertisements, you name it. I have also had to write for all grade levels from grade two through college. My work has been published by about 30 U.S. states plus various regions, districts and cities, including New York City, Washington D.C., and St. Louis. I have also written on national assessments like the GED, the Stanford, the PCAT, and the Miller Analogies Test.
I love to teach. I am a certified and experienced secondary English teacher in the state of Texas and have taught high school composition for four years. In addition, I have taught writing to college graduates, having led classes for international students to help them prepare for the TOEFL and for the verbal portion of the GRE. I frequently help internationals put their PhD dissertations in plain English.
