Service Description
Abacus Writing and Editing is a freelance writing business specializing in creative educational writing and technical writing with a focus and interest in math-related projects.

After teaching math for 20 years and doing some freelance work on the side for educational publishers, I have resigned from my teaching job in order to turn my energies to freelance writing full-time.

I have an undergraduate degree in journalism and a masters degree in math education. I am creative, hard-working, detail-oriented, and fun to work with. I am also a strong writer and able to take complex material and explain it clearly. I will not miss a deadline and I believe communication is the key to a strong working relationship.

Abacus Writing and Editing provides writing and editing services in the fields of education, math, training, and technology. Writing is guaranteed to be error free, creative, professional, and on time.
